In the multihop cellular networks, multiple routes from a user station to a base station can be established because of the flexibility of network topology. In order to reduce packet errors of wireless transmissions, we proposed the multi-route coding scheme, in which packets are encoded and divided into subpackets, and they are transmitted on several routes from the user station to the base station. In order to improve the performance of the multi-route coding, a route selection scheme is very important issue. In this paper, we propose the route selection scheme for the multi-route coding in multihop cellular networks. The proposed scheme is based on the bit error rate of wireless links. We also apply the proposed route selection scheme to a hybrid routing protocol and evaluate its performance.
