Device-to-device (D2D) communication in cellular networks is a promising concept that permits cooperation among mobile devices not only to increase data throughput but also to enhance localization services. In those networks, the allocation of transmitting power plays a critical role in determining network lifetime and localization accuracy. Meanwhile, it is a challenging task for implementation in cooperative D2D networks, since each device has only imperfect estimates of local network parameters in distributed settings. In this paper, we establish an optimization framework for robust power allocation in cooperative wireless network localization, and develop distributed power allocation strategies. In particular, we decompose the power allocation problem into infrastructure and cooperation phases, show the sparsity property of the optimal power allocation, and develop efficient power allocation strategies. Simulation results show that these strategies can achieve significant performance improvement in localization accuracy compared to the uniform strategies.
