The ability to estimate the location of objects accurately is one of the main objectives of localization techniques in the Internet of Things (IoT) in order to enable the massive exchange of information among things. This paper presents a survey of existing localization techniques and evaluates existing categories in IoT. Relevant state of the art articles has been reviewed and assessed accordingly. Applications of localization techniques, evaluation metrics, constraints and open research issues have been investigated in order to enrich the discussion. In short, this survey will assist researchers and professionals working in area of localization to cope with the different related aspects of the emerging IoT paradigm.
