We focus on the cooperative mobile positioning based on the received signal strength for heterogeneous environments. We use the least squares method to estimate the channel attenuation coefficients, and hyperbolic method to determine the position. For increasing accuracy, we use different weighting to the adjacent users' data in the attenuation coefficients estimation.
