Summary: 
In wireless communication, it is hard to set the optimal route between a source and a destination through relays, since for optimal relaying, the system operator should know all channel conditions from a source to a destination through relays and determine the path with all channel conditions. In this letter, a multiple relay selection strategy is proposed for the reliability of transmission. The proposed strategy establishes a relaying route to a destination and provides an efficient relay selection process regardless of all channel conditions.
