The indoor environment is especially of interest for cooperative methods as indoors the density of potentially cooperating devices is much higher than outdoors. Outdoors where the omnipresent coverage of satellite based positioning is the key goal to use already existing infrastructure, like GPS. Indoor could also make use of outdoor positioned mobile nodes by using or exploiting peer-2-peer (P2P) connectivity. The P2P connectivity in indoors only supports also the ubiquitous indoor positioning experience itself. In this paper we investigate dynamic cooperative positioning.
