The LoRa technology was developed to enable low-power, high-range wireless sensor transmission. Two recent papers from the research group at the TLC&RS lab [1,2] have shown that a simple RSSI-based method can be used for localizing LoRa IoT sensors. Article [1] has been one of the most read paper of the Wiley Internet Technology Letters in 2018-2019, and recently the dataset used in this work has been included in the 2020 GitHub Archive Program. Details of the two papers follow.
