In this paper, the authors investigate a cross-layer relay selection approach for cooperative-diversity networks that employ the truncated Automatic Repeat reQuest (ARQ) protocol. The key feature of the proposed scheme is that the criterion for the selection of relay subsets is the maximization of the link-layer throughput that takes into account both the physical and link layers characteristics. Results show that the proposed cross-layer approach which assigns transmission to relay combination that sees better channel conditions, outperforms the capacity-based cooperative transmission with the same number of reliable relays in terms of throughput gain.
