In Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs), conventional packet forwarding schemes that pre-select the next-hop receivers for a packet may fail if the channel coherence time is on the order of the typical packet duration because the pre-selected node may often suffer a deep fade for the duration of the packet. An alternative approach is geographic transmission, in which the packet is transmitted in the direction of the destination, but the next-hop forwarding node is selected among those nodes that are in the direction of the destination and that correctly recover the message. This approach takes advantage of multi-user diversity to significantly improve the probability of the packet being correctly received by a forwarding agent.
