We build an array with seven scalar magnetometers. The center of the array is located at the origin of a Cartesian coordinate system with the X-axis toward to the geographical north, the Y-axis toward to the geographical east, and Z-axis downward to the ground, as shown in Figure 1.
This code can then be easily decoded using a standard magnetometer, which is there in most smartphones.
For meeting the demands of cost and size for micro navigation system, such as spinning shell, Missiles, and aircrafts, the scheme of attitude estimation combining single antenna GPS with low cost MEMS IMU and magnetometer is designed.
Magnetometer Types and Standard Calibration Methods
The raw data provided by the magnetometers are further analyzed and treated by the personnel in the observatory, who publishes final data within a year compiling worldwide measurements of the other observatories (Diaz Michelena et al., 2015).

The sensor unit contains three orthogonally mounted MEMS gyroscopes ([+ or -] 300[degrees]/s), three orthogonally mounted MEMS accelerometers ([+ or -] 18 g), three orthogonally mounted solid state magnetometers ([+ or -] 3.5 Gauss), and one microcontroller.
Taking advantage of built-in magnetometers, Hwang's team came up with a technology that enabled an input tool for mobile devices such as a capacitive stylus pen to interact more sensitively and effectively with the devices' touch screen.
The dynamic range of an NMOR-based magnetometer is limited by the width of the resonance, and the sensitivity that can be obtained is around 0.15 pT/[Hz.sup.1/2] [5], which is adequate for geomagnetic measurements.
Sitting next to my magnetometer (3,4) in Edinburgh it was possible to compare changes in auroral forms with corresponding changes in the Earth's magnetic field.
"Magnetometers certainly project a protective aura; however they are not a security panacea in most health care settings," say Kelen and Catlett.
