Abstract

This article implies a method of magnetometer error determination. Using solid-state magnetic sensors, vehicle odometer and GPS sensor, low-cost complex navigation system for land vehicles can be realized. The methods and algorithms of magnetometer calibration are shown. Results of magnetometer calibration experiments and possibility to detect magnetometer error parameters in process of car driving are analysed. To acquire vehicle heading output, navigation system described here is developed.
