In this paper, the authors perform an analysis and checks adaptability of MIMO system and cooperative communication systems (which leads to a virtual MIMO system) especially for wireless ad hoc sensor networks. The cooperative MIMO communication system has a source node which is surrounded by multiple neighbors. The source node along with its neighbors forms cooperation where all nodes including the source node have a single antenna. Thus this cooperative cluster acts as a virtual MIMO system which becomes most suitable for wireless ad hoc sensor networks due to the presence of single antenna at each node.
