© 2019 IEEE. Magnetometer measurements periods are usually different from magnetic rods activation periods, in order to lessen the effect of the rods' generated magnetic field on the measurements. Magnetic field estimation methods are proposed to be utilized in the control feedback, to estimate the magnetic field, at times, instead of real measurement. This proposed approach results in reducing the maneuver time and the power consumption.
