© 2019 IEEE. This paper investigates the location-based relay selection problem, where the source node chooses its relay from a set of spatially deployed decode-and-forward relays. The advantages of location-based relay selection are the elimination of excessive relay switching rate and the feedback reduction avoiding the requirement of having full channel state information at the source node. For a homogeneous Poisson point process of candidate relays, we first derive the distribution for the distance of the relay (relative to the source and destination nodes) selected by the optimum location-based relay selection policy. This result is independent of the functional form of the path-loss fu..
