The main advantage of the DSM protocol is that it provides distributed diversity to the source's transmission, while simultaneously allowing the relays to efficiently transmit their own data to the destination. In this paper, network coding is combined with DSM in order to increase the data rate of the source-to-destination link while maintaining the same diversity order of 2 for this data. Two methods of detection are proposed for implementation at the destination node: an error-aware maximum likelihood (ML) demodulator which is robust to demodulation errors at the relays, and a low-complexity suboptimal demodulator which assumes correct demodulation at the relays. The system bit error rate (BER) performance is measured under two different relay geometries. Simulation results show that for the same overall system throughput, the proposed network coded DSM protocol can increase the source-to-destination data rate by approximately 33.3% compared to the conventional DSM system, while still guaranteeing a similar BER as for DSM for both of the considered channel geometries.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IEEE||Start page:||70||End page:||75||Copyright (published version):||2018 IEEE||Keywords:||Relays; Demodulation; MIMO communication; Throughput; Transmitting antennas||DOI:||10.1109/ICT.2018.8464899||Other versions:||https://www.comsoc.org/conferences-events/international-conference-telecommunications-2018||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||2018 25th International Conference on Telecommunications ICT 2018||Conference Details:||The 25th International Conference on Telecommunications (ICT2018), Saint-Malo, France, 26-28 June 2018||ISBN:||9781538623213|
