Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a network of various nodes, which get connected with each other whenever they are deployed. The communication among nodes has been one of the major factors for the draining the energy of nodes. That is the reason, routing between sensor nodes becomes significant. In this paper, the one of the modes of routing is studied which incorporates cooperative communication among sensor nodes. The cooperative communication forms virtual MIMO (Multi Input Multi Output)
