LocURa: A New Localisation and UWB-Based Ranging Testbed for the Internet of Things

Abstract : As many applications of the Internet of Things assume the knowledge of mobile object position, localisation has become a hot topic in the academic research community as well as for industrial R&D departments. Although distance measurements (ranging) and localisation can be studied though simulations, using real nodes provides more accurate and realistic results, especially when the nodes are deployed in the target environment. In order to support this effort, the paper presents LocURa4IoT, a new Localisation and UWB-based Ranging testbed for the Internet of Things. The testbed is made of 20 nodes based on Decawave DW1000UWB-based transceiver and Arduino-compliant micro-controllers. The nodes' control infrastructure is presented in the paper, as well as a few results obtained with LocURa. Two open datasets are also published with the paper.
