Summary: 
For reducing bit errors on wireless channels, we have proposed the multiroute coding scheme on multiple routes for wireless multihop networks. In this paper, we introduce ARQ to our multiroute coding scheme. In our multiroute coding scheme, a destination node combines and decodes subpackets which are encoded and divided by a source node. Each intermediate node relays a subpacket, that is, only a part of a packet. Therefore, intermediate nodes cannot detect packet errors, and only a destination node can do so after combining and decoding subpackets. We propose an ARQ scheme between a source node and a destination node. We analyze the proposed ARQ scheme and evaluate the system performance.
