In this paper, a calibration method for a triaxial accelerometer using a triaxial gyroscope is presented. The method uses a sensor fusion approach, combining the information from the accelerometers and gyroscopes to find an optimal calibration using Maximum likelihood. The method has been tested by using real sensors in smartphones to perform orientation estimation and verified through Monte Carlo simulations. In both cases, the method is shown to provide a proper calibration, reducing the
