Highly-accurate localization of wireless devices is a critical feature of future Internet-of-Things applications. Due to its superior time-domain resolution, ultra-wideband (UWB) technology allows centimeter-level positioning accuracy. Still, setting up an anchor-based UWB localization system requires extensive labour and costs. Recent works have shown that, instead of multiple physical anchors, the exploitation of multipath reflections from walls minimizes the required infrastructure to a single anchor. This dataset contains an extensive measurement campaign in two complex indoor environments with one anchor. It contains line-of-sight as well as non-line-of-sight situations. Furthermore, we have acquired datasets using directional antennas at the anchor to allow observing the impact of the angular domain on the localization performance.
