The concept of double sided ladders made of pixel sensors allows the reconstruction of mini-vectors between the two sides. These mini-vectors can improve the pattern recognition. In this perspective, new methods of tracking and alignment with mini-vectors can be studied. In particular, standalone alignment of a double sided layer with mini-vectors using the overlapping regions of two consecutive ladders can be studied. A GEANT4 simulation and a digitizer of MIMOSA-28 sensor have been developped in order to study this subject. In the context of the AIDA telescope, we will show a local alignment method of double sided ladder (PLUME) and SALAT plane without mini-vectors. Then, we will show first studies on alignment with mini-vectors in ideal case. Finally we will discuss the validity of this method in the real case of ILC.
