Because of the increasing relevance of the Internet of Things and location-based services, researchers are evaluating wireless positioning techniques, such as fingerprinting, on Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) communication. In order to evaluate fingerprinting in large outdoor environments, extensive, time-consuming measurement campaigns need to be conducted to create useful datasets. This paper presents three LPWAN datasets which are collected in large-scale urban and rural areas. The goal…

A published dataset of RSSI measurements on a Sigfox network deployed in Antwerp, Belgium is used to analyse the appropriate selection of preprocessing steps and to tune the hyperparameters of a kNN fingerprinting method.
Comparing Machine Learning Algorithms for RSS-Based Localization in LPWAN
TLDR
This research investigates energy-efficient solutions such a Received Signal Strength (RSS)-based fingerprinting localization, and evaluates ten different Machine Learning algorithms in terms of location accuracy, \(R^2\) score, and evaluation time.
Low-Power LoRa Signal-Based Outdoor Positioning Using Fingerprint Algorithm
TLDR
This paper proposes a LoRa signal-based positioning method that uses a fingerprint algorithm instead of a received signal strength indicator (RSSI) proximity or TDoA method, and reduces the battery consumption significantly compared with that of existing GPS- based positioning methods.
SateLoc: A Virtual Fingerprinting Approach to Outdoor LoRa Localization using Satellite Images
TLDR

TLDR
A comparison of three proximity methods, one fingerprinting method and three ranging methods using Sigfox communication messages achieves the best result compared to other signal strength localization methods.
SateLoc: A Virtual Fingerprinting Approach to Outdoor LoRa Localization Using Satellite Images
TLDR
