The technologies of Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity focus on supporting the needs of multiple applications or use cases across different sectors, such as agricultural production, asset management or smart cities, logistics , and healthcare. However, several challenges require addressing each of the aforementioned applications, such as low and ultra-low latency requirements, dealing with large or massive networks and long-battery life requirements, authentication, security, and real-time location monitoring of particular nodes. Therefore, choosing a connectivity solution to a specific application depends entirely on how well its features address the end application's specific needs. One of the main features required for future IoT networks is providing location-based services for large-scale IoT applications. Using IoT wearables technology opens a new opportunity for location-based services in today's context-awareness applications. Wearable indoor localization is an emerging technology that lacks theoretical and analytical background in terms of authentication and authorization based on short or long communication modes. For this reason, wearable indoor technology should be designed in such a way more secure to ensure that personal data are not shared with third parties. Besides, the high accuracy of wearable device/human recognition is another critical issue that needs to be addressed to provide a remarkable location-based service. The objective of this Special Issue is to provide the state-of-the-arts in the field of wearable indoor localization in terms of identification and authorization that are able to solve the issues in next-generation location-based service with secure authentication.

The special issue is targeted to serve the industrial researchers and academia and to present their state-of-art ideas and contributions towards the perspective scope and challenges.
