This letter investigates the training convergence in range-based cooperative positioning with stochastic positional knowledge. Firstly, a closed-form of squared position-error bound (SPEB) is derived with error-free ranging. Using the derived closed-form, it is proved that the SPEB reaches its minimum when at least 2 out of N(>2) agents send training sequences. Finally, numerical results are provided to elaborate the theoretical analysis with zero-mean Gaussian ranging errors.
