Abstract-- Given limitations with current technology, nodes
in a sensor network have stringent energy and complexity
constraints. This paper presents a scheme for cooperative error-
control coding, using rateless and low-density generator-matrix
codes, for sensor networks. Assuming knowledge of the source-
relay channel quality, we use density evolution to show that the
proposed scheme achieves good performance and a good energy
tradeoff despite low computational complexity. The scheme
exploits the flexibility of rateless codes to permit, depending on
the channel conditions, independent, relay and cooperative modes
of operation. As a motivating example, we analyze networks of
two cooperating nodes communicating with a more sophisticated
receiver. We also discuss the generalization of our framework to
a multi-node system.
