This work proposes an opportunistic scheduling scheme for Multi-Carrier Index Keying - Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (MCIK-OFDM), which is termed as OS-MCIK-OFDM. Particularly, in every transmission, the proposed scheme allows only one machine whose worst sub-channel is the maximum among several machines’ worst sub-channels, to communicate with the central device, employing MCIKOFDM technique. As a result, OS-MCIK-OFDM can harvest the multiuser diversity gain to enhance the reliability of MCIK-OFDM, especially when the number of machines increases. For performance analysis, we derive the closed-form expression for the symbol error probability (SEP), which is then asymptotically analyzed to develop unique features that can address achievable diversity and coding gains, as well as impacts of system parameters. Finally, simulation results are presented to validate the accuracy of the derived SEP performance of OS-MCIK-OFDM and specifically its superiority over the opportunistic scheduling OFDM
