We propose a novel topology control scheme that reduces the transmission power of nodes and increases the network connectivity, based on the fact that Cooperative Communication (CC) technology can bridge disconnected networks. Simulation results demonstrate that our scheme greatly increases the connectivity for a given transmission power, compared to other topology control schemes.
