Energy-Efficient Cooperative Protocol for Wireless Networks

In cooperative networks, transmitting and receiving nodes recruit neighboring nodes to help in communication. The authors model a cooperative transmission link in wireless networks and then it forms a cluster at transmitter end and a receiver end. In this paper, they propose a cooperative communication protocol for formation of these clusters for cooperative transmission of data. This paper proposes a new reliable and energy efficient cooperative protocol, and they analyzed the robustness of the protocol to data packet loss, along with the tradeoff between energy consumption and error rate.
