  author={Nuno Miguel Cardanha Paulino and Lu{\'i}s M. Pessoa and Andr{\'e} Branquinho and Rafael Tavares and Igor Ferreira},
In order to achieve the full potential of the Internetof-Things, connectivity between devices should be ubiquitous and efficient. Wireless mesh networks are a critical component to achieve this ubiquitous connectivity for a wide range of services, and are composed of terminal devices (i.e., nodes), such as sensors of various types, and wall powered gateway devices, which provide further internet connectivity (e..g, via WiFi). When considering large indoor areas, such as hospitals or industrial…

BLEmesh: A Wireless Mesh Network Protocol for Bluetooth Low Energy Devices
The preliminary evaluation results show that the number of transmissions by BLEmesh is significantly smaller compared to its competitors for some selected network configurations, reducing the aggregated energy consumption within the mesh network.
Bluetooth now or low energy: Should BLE mesh become a flooding or connection oriented network?
This paper proposes an architecture, called Bluetooth Now, that is able to automatically switch the network between the two mesh approaches based on message priority, and confirms the reliable delivery of important and urgent data sent using the Bluetooth Now paradigm.

A Survey of Indoor Localization Systems and Technologies
This paper aims to provide a detailed survey of different indoor localization techniques, such as angle of arrival (AoA), time of flight (ToF), return time ofFlight (RTOF), and received signal strength (RSS) based on technologies that have been proposed in the literature.
RSSI-Based Indoor Localization With the Internet of Things
Four wireless technologies for indoor localization: Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11n-2009 at the 2.4 GHz band), Bluetooth low energy, Zigbee, and long-range wide-area network are compared in terms of localization accuracy and power consumption when IoT devices are used.
A Multimodal Fingerprint-Based Indoor Positioning System for Airports
The initial results show that the positioning service performs better with a multimodal approach compared to individual (monomodal) approaches and even compared with Google’s geolocation service in public spaces such as airports.
