Cell-edge users of the future cellular internet of things (IoT) with massive IoT sensors can suffer from extremely severe channel conditions, especially under very high-speed scenarios. In this paper, we present a performance improvement method for cell-edge users of multi-carrier modulation (MCM)-based non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) downlink systems. To this end, we consider the implementation of cooperative user relaying NOMA (CUR-NOMA) and derive its lower bound end-to-end bit error rate (E2E-BER) under doubly selective channels. In addition, the imperfect successive interference cancellation (SIC) process is analyzed, wherein two interference cancellation schemes are combined to remove the NOMA induced inter-user interference (IUI) and the doubly selective channel induced inter-carrier interference (ICI). Furthermore, numerical simulations are performed to prove the efficiency of the introduced schemes with imperfect channel state information (CSI) when compared to the theoretical perfect SIC with a perfect CSI case.
