Grid Based Cooperative Spectrum Sensing in Cognitive Networks Under Correlated Shadowing

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Correlated shadowing can have significant effects on the performance of cooperative spectrum sensing. In this paper, the authors investigate a grid based cooperative spectrum sensing in cognitive networks under correlated shadowing. They study three types of grids: equilateral triangular, square and hexagonal grids, where the sensing users are deployed at the intersections of the polygons. The collaboration is formed as a location testing problem with Gaussian noise, where the shadow fading is modeled as a multivariate Gaussian process with two dimensional exponential correlation model.
