A computationally efficient framework for automatic inertial sensor calibration

Abstract The calibration of (low-cost) inertial sensors has become increasingly important over the past years since their use has grown exponentially in many applications going from unmanned aerial vehicle navigation to 3D-animation. However, this calibration procedure is often quite problematic since the signals issued from these sensors have a complex spectral structure and the methods available to estimate the parameters of these models are either unstable, computationally intensive and/or statistically inconsistent. This paper presents a new software platform for inertial sensor calibration based on the Generalized Method of Wavelet Moments which provides a computationally efficient, flexible, user-friendly and statistically sound tool to estimate and select from a wide range of complex models. The software is developed within the open-source statistical software R and is based on C++ language allowing it to achieve high computational performance.
