The present document relates to a system and method for calibration of sensors for vehicles, such as radar, lidars and cameras. The inventive concept comprises enabling the sensors to detect the vehicle on which they are mounted by using external reflecting object such as a mirror, window, etc. The reflected image/ sensor signals are used to estimate the sensor's position (a.k.a. extrinsic parameters) on the vehicle. The calibration procedure of the sensors is thereby radically improved, leading to significantly reduced calibration costs.
