    This paper investigates retransmission (RT) mechanisms in wireless regenerative multirelay networks. Conventionally, the RT can be realized in a cooperative manner with the assistance of all available relays. However, this may result in high overall power consumption due to the RT of the same packets across the nodes, particularly when the number of relays is large. We propose a cooperative RT (CR) scheme based on relay cooperation (RC) and binary xor operations to significantly reduce the number of packets retransmitted to produce a more power-efficient system with nonoverlapped RTs.
