Abstract
As it capitalises on spatio-temporal processing, cooperative transmission aims to improve the reliability of wireless communications through the exploitation of radio diversity provided by relay nodes assisting in the transmission between the source and destination nodes. The inclusion of network layer routines facilitates the orchestration of such cooperative data processing in terms of the pre-selection of the network nodes to be assigned to cooperating groups intended to express cooperative behaviour. Going further, as the system becomes more and more complex, there appears an urgent need to introduce certain dose of self-management from the global perspective so that numerous cooperative and non-cooperative set-ups may be formed simultaneously. This is where the autonomic system design comes into the picture as the main enabler for and the umbrella under which the concept of Autonomic Cooperative Networking may be realised.
