  • Patent number: 10754379
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer media for calibrating user-mounted devices are provided. An external device capable of providing calibration data to a user-mounted device worn by a user is identified. An identification acknowledgement is received from the external device. A device calibration mode is entered in which calibration data describing the user-mounted device is received by the user-mounted device. The calibration data is based at least in part on sensor data acquired and normalized by the external device. The calibration data is then received. The calibration data includes at least one determined pose or body measurement of the user and a calculated alignment of the user-mounted device relative to the user. The user-mounted device is calibrated using the received calibration data.
