This project concerns the development of a platform for rapid prototyping and evaluating of wireless cooperative protocols under real-world conditions. The platform is built using a heterogeneous hardware basis, consisting of mobile embedded devices and the GNU Radio SDR toolkit using the USRP2. It operates in the 2.4GHz ISM band and a default implementation based on the Bluetooth radio and baseband layer is developed. The platform is modelled on a two-way relay scenario, consisting of a single relay node facilitating communication between two endpoint nodes. To demonstrate the possible application of the developed platform, an experiment comparing the achievable throughput for relaying without network coding and with XOR network coding is performed. The results shows the platform is applicable for comparison and evaluation of an implementation of Bluetooth relaying, with and without XOR network coding.
