Magnetic Sensor Algorithms¶
OpenIMU ships with a number of ready to use, downloadable applications to help you get started.
This section discusses algorithms that can make use of the OpenIMU’s on-board magnetic sensor. Currently, this is primarily for Magnetic Alignment also referred to as Compass Calibration, or Hard/Soft Iron Calibration.
In the future, this section may include other algorithms that make use of the magnetometer including event detection and pedestrian dead reckoning.
