This chapter presents relay selection policies under different communication scenarios and applications. Specifically, the chapter focuses on the benefits and efficiency of relay selection in the context of full-duplex (FD) enabled relays (Section 6.2), relays with buffers (Section 6.3) and relays with wireless power transfer (WPT) capabilities (Section 6.4). These scenarios show that relay selection is an efficient PHY layer tool for the design of modern communication networks.
