Terminal-collaborated multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) reception with adaptive terminal selection schemes has been studied experimentally. In the experimental system, frequency-domain iterative MIMO equalization was employed, and its performance was evaluated by making use of recorded signal waveforms in a measurement campaign. In iterative signal processing, it is known that early stopping can control unnecessary iterations. In this letter, it is revealed that early stopping can not only reduce computational complexity, but also improve the bit error ratio performance of iterative processing. This is because early stopping prevents the iteration process from causing errors.
