As a possible standardization of wireless local area network (WLAN), IEEE 802.11 LRLP is under discussion in order to support long range and low power (LRLP) communication for internet of things (IoT) including drones and many other IoT devices. In this paper, an efficient adaptive resource unit allocation scheme for uplink multiuser transmission in IEEE 802.11 LRLP networks is proposed. In the proposed scheme, which adopts OFDMA random access based transmission scheme of IEEE 802.11ax, in order to enhance the efficiency of the slotted OFDMA random access, access point (AP) traces the history of the sizes of successfully transmitted uplink data, and adjusts the sizes of resource units for the next uplink multiuser transmission adaptively. Our simulation results corroborate that the proposed scheme significantly improves the system throughput.
