Mobile positioning using Received Signal Strength (RSS) measurements is regarded as a low cost solution which is applicable in a wide range of wireless networks. In this paper, we propose a cooperative RSS-based positioning algorithm, that relies on the promising idea of mobile to mobile communications in the next generation of cellular networks. Simulations performed in this paper indicate that utilizing the additional RSS data of the short range communications between Mobile Stations (MS's), enhances the accuracy of the traditional RSS-based positioning algorithms.
