The major industry growth sectors that rely on continuous positioning information to enhance efficiency and safety are broadly across transportation and location based services (LBS). Significantly, delivering a robust positioning capability in priority operating environments for these sectors (urban areas, indoors, etc) is a challenge for the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) - the primary positioning technology for LBS and transportation. Cooperative positioning (CP) techniques leverage the availability of a communications infrastructure to share information and data between objects within a neighbourhood. Developed originally for use across wireless sensor networks, CP techniques offer a viable solution for improving positioning for land mobile applications. In this scenario, people and vehicles operate as 'sensors' that form an ad hoc network, sharing information sensed locally but also using relative measurements between objects. This paper describes an initiative undertaken through the Working Group on Ubiquitous Positioning within the International Federation of Surveyors, Commission 5 and International Association of Geodesy, Commission 4. It presents the architectures, scenarios and algorithms used traditionally for CP and identifies innovative concepts and directions for adapting and improving these algorithms using constraints and smart modelling techniques specific to the land mobile operating environment.
