MEMS gyroscopes are widely used as an alternative to the more expensive industrial IMUs. The instability of the lower cost MEMS gyroscopes creates a large demand for calibration algorithms. This paper provides an overview of existing calibration methods and describes the various types of errors found in gyroscope data.
The proposed calibration method for gyroscope constants provides higher accuracy than datasheet constants. Furthermore, we show that using a different constant for each direction provides even higher accuracy.
