This paper presents a fast and low cost way to calibrate different inertial measurement sensors. In particular the calibration of an accelerometer and a gyroscope using nonlinear least squares is presented. A model of the sensors which includes the main errors that MEMS devices present is used. A calibration method is proposed for estimating the static parameters of the model and a temperature adjustment is proposed and implemented.
