Recently, there has been an increasing interest in exploiting interference cancelation to support multiple adjacent concurrent transmissions instead of avoiding interference through scheduling. In line with these efforts, this paper propose an interference coordinated routing (ICR) scheme for wireless multi-hop networks to achieve more transmission concurrence, and thus lower the end-to-end delay. The proposed ICR scheme firstly constructs an initial path by the interference-aware routing algorithm, which captures the end-to-end latency and spatial resource cost as the routing metrics. Then, to analyze the feasibility of concurrent transmission for a given link set, we consider the interference coordination and formulate the concurrent transmission of multiple links as a linear programming (LP) problem. The solution to the LP problem indicates the power allocation. Finally, a distributed guard zone based selection (GBS) algorithm is further proposed to iteratively explore the maximum feasible link set for each time slot. The selected links are simultaneously active for packet transmission with the allocated power in the current time slot, and the remaining links will be put off to the next. Simulation results confirm that ICR reduces the end-to-end delay by 9.16% to 73.82%, and promotes better transmission concurrence compared with the existing schemes.
