We propose new routing scheme, Cooperative Diversity-based Routing (CDR) which utilize the cooperative space diversity for power saving and for performance enhancement of wireless ad-hoc networks. The end-to-end performance of the proposed routing, CDR, is analyzed based on the Haenggi's link model. The improved performance is compared with Multi-hop Relay Routing (MRR) by analytical methods. When the required outage probability is 1times10-3 at the destination node in ad-hoc networks with 7 nodes, we noticed that each node can save power consumption by 21.5 dB in average, by using our proposed CDR compared to MRR.
