Shimmer 9DoF Calibration

The Shimmer 9DOF Calibration Application v1.0 provides an automated procedure for calculating the calibration parameters for Shimmer’s integrated tri-axial accelerometer, and the 9DoF module’s Gyro and Magnetometer sensors. The calibration parameters can be stored to the Shimmer memory and recalled by other applications to provide calibrated sensor data.

The application allows users to save calibrated parameters to the Shimmer unit which can then be recalled by other applications. A data analysis feature is also available to verify the accuracy of the calibrated values.

Main Features include:

  • Automated procedure for determining calibration parameters of tri-axial accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer
  • Define your preferred x,y,z co-ordinate axis
  • Save the calculated calibration parameters to the Shimmer unit
  • Save/load the calculated calibration parameters to/from a file
  • Provides a data analysis tab to verify the accuracy of the calibrated parameters
  • View both raw and calibrated values
  • Version 1.0 has an improved application interface and context help for ease of use
  • Detailed manual with step by step guideline
  • Supporting video tutorial
