We measure the expansion rate of the recent Universe and the calibration

scale of the baryon acoustic oscillation (BAO) from low-redshift data. BAO

relies on the calibration scale, i.e., the sound horizon at the end of drag

epoch $r_d$, which often imposes a prior of the cosmic microwave background

(CMB) measurement from the Planck satellite. In order to make really

independent measurements of $H_0$, we leave $r_d$ completely free and use the

BAO datasets combined with the 31 observational $H(z)$ data (OHD) and GW170817.

For the two model-independent reconstructions of $H(z)$, we obtain

$H_0=69.66^{+5.88}_{-6.63}$ km s$^{-1}$ Mpc$^{-1}$,

$r_d=148.56^{+3.65}_{-4.08}$ Mpc in the cubic expansion, and $H_0=71.13pm2.91$

km s$^{-1}$ Mpc$^{-1}$, $r_d=148.48^{+3.73}_{-3.74}$ Mpc in the polynomial

expansion, and we find that the values of sound horizon $r_d$ are consistent

with the estimate derived from the Planck CMB data assuming a flat $Lambda$CDM

model.
