In this letter, we focus on transmission side diversity and energy efficient routing in a wireless mesh network of cellular base stations. Our aim is to design a cooperative routing algorithm which takes the active radio electronic power consumption into consideration when constructing the minimum power route from source to destination. We introduce the concept of supernode with improved power efficiency and propose a power aware cooperative routing algorithm. Simulation results show a significant performance improvement over well known power saving routing schemes.
