Cooperative communication is an active area of research today. It enables the nodes to achieve spatial diversity, which leads to tremendous improvement in system capacity and delay. In this proposed system cooperative communication mechanism is used to determine a list of intermediate relay nodes that follows en-route to the destinations. Here, when data packets are broadcasted from a source node and the packets are received by a destination node along with the route. Cooperative communications which utilizes nearby terminals to relay the message transmissions also induces the non-cooperative nodes to participate in some opportunistic environments for achieving the diversity gains and to improve the efficiencies among the mobile nodes in wireless mobile ad hoc networks.
