Ultra wide-Band (UWB) technologies are being feverishly developed in the technical community and will enable extremely high rate and short-range wireless networks. In this paper, the authors propose link-adaptive cooperative communication in wireless USB networks. To select the optimal relay node, they propose the RNS (Relay Node Selection) algorithm considering channel condition. Also, the proposed protocol can be directly applied with small overhead to the current wireless USB standard system. Furthermore, each device independently performs RNS algorithm by using the proposed protocol.
