In this paper, game theory is exploited to derive a novel solution to manage virtual antenna array based transmissions in an ad hoc wireless network consisting of selfish nodes. In the proposed strategy each node decides, in an autonomous fashion, whether and when transmitting data packets over a shared wireless channel. The resulting transmission scheme results to be functionally equivalent to a distributed transmission selection scheme, managed, however, in a fully distributed fashion. This approach offers an higher throughput level and an higher efficiency than other communication protocols implementing selection diversity in distributed multi-antenna systems.
