Recently, the cooperative communication has been proposed and studied to improve the system performance in wireless communication environments. In this paper, the authors propose the STBC (Space Time Block Coding) cooperative communication system with interference cancellation scheme. The multiple cooperated relay nodes that help the source signal forward are considered to be the multiple transmit antennas. The STBC scheme is applied to achieve higher diversity gain without the transmitter knowing the CSI (Channel State Information) and to decrease the complexity of the transceiver.
