The major problems faced by wireless communication in real time environment are that of interference and un-reliable communication links. A lot of research work has been done to overcome this using various techniques. Two of the techniques that help in reducing interference and communication link failures are cooperative communication and transmission side diversity in the network. In this paper, the authors propose a new type of protocol that proactively selects a group of forwarding nodes that work cooperatively in forwarding the packet towards the destination. Multiple nodes are selected so as to co-ordinate their transmission to achieve transmission side diversity. In this network nodes are equipped with Omni-directional antenna to achieve transmission side diversity.
