In this paper we present the results of real-life localization experiments performed in an unprecedented cooperative and heterogeneous wireless context. These measurements are based on ZigBee and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) devices, respectively endowed with received signal strength indicator (RSSI) and round trip delay (RTD) estimation capabilities. More particularly we emulate a multistandard terminal, moving in a typical indoor environment, while communicating with fixed OFDM-based femto-base stations (Femto-BSs) and with other mobiles or fixed anchor nodes (through peer-to-peer links) forming a wireless sensor network (WSN). We introduce the measurement functionalities and metrics, the scenario and set-up, providing realistic connectivity and obstruction conditions. Out of the experimental data, preliminary positioning results based on cooperative and geometric algorithms are finally discussed, showing benefits through mobile-to- mobile cooperation, selective hybrid data fusion and detection of unreliable nodes.
