Heading angle of magnetic compasses is estimated using the triaxial magnetometer readings. The accuracy of these readings is influenced by many factors such as sensor errors (scale factors, non-orthogonality, and offsets), and magnetic deviations (soft-iron and hard-iron interference). To calculate the true heading angle, the magnetic calibration of magnetometer is necessary. This research paper describes a calibration procedure for triaxial low-cost MEMS magnetometer. The proposed calibration method determines twelve calibration parameters in 3D arbitrary rotations of magnetometer.
