This paper proposes a cross-layer design which combines adaptive modulation and coding (AMC), cooperative diversity at physical layer (PHY) and hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) at data link layer (LL) for wireless ad-hoc networks. First, we provide theoretical analyses of conventional direct transmission scheme and cooperative transmission scheme with AMC and HARQ that include analytical expressions for the packet error rate (PER) and spectral efficiency. Then we propose a novel hybrid… CONTINUE READING
