In this letter, we propose a mutual information based soft forwarding scheme for memoryless parallel relay networks. The relay forwarding function of the proposed scheme consists of the hard decisions of the symbol estimates and a reliability measure. The reliability measure is determined by the symbol-wise mutual information computed from the absolute… CONTINUE READING
