In this paper, we propose novel relay selection policies that aim at reducing the average delay by incorporating the buffer size of the relay nodes into the relay selection process. More specifically, we propose two delay-Aware protocols that are based on the max-link relay selection protocol. First, a delay-Aware only approach while it reduces the delays considerably it starves the buffers and increases the outage probability of the system. Towards this end, we propose a delay-and diversity-Aware buffer-Aided relay selection policy that aims at reducing the average delay considerably and at the same time maintaining good diversity. The protocols are analyzed by means of Markov Chains and expressions for the outage, throughput and delay are derived. The performance and use of our proposed algorithms is demonstrated via extensive simulations and comparisons.
