    WiFi localization problem is basically a multi-sensor data fusion. This paper investigates the use of Bayesian and non-Bayesian Dempster Shafer (DS) data fusion in the context of WiFi-based indoor positioning via fingerprinting. Two novel DS mass choices are discussed. The positioning results are based on real-field measurement data from nine distinct multi-floor buildings in two countries. It is shown that a proper mass choice is crucial in DS processing and that, in spite of taking into account the data uncertainty, the DS data fusion is not offering significant advantage in terms of positioning performance over the Bayesian data fusion.
