In multi-hop wireless networks, the transmitted signal is generally forwarded over several relay terminals. So, the quality of communications is degraded due to these re-transmissions over fading channels in relay terminals. Basically, the conventional cooperative relaying scheme based on cyclic delay diversity (CDD) reduces this degradation because this scheme could have numerous relay terminals which simultaneously transmit the signals. However, we cannot obtain the maximum diversity gain because of the re-transmission without considering relay channel environments. In this letter, to overcome the decreased performance, we propose an adaptive decode-and-forward (DF) relaying scheme based on CDD which uses cyclic redundancy check (CRC) code. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme provides more improvement in error performance than the conventional schemes in multi-hop networks.
