Energy Minimization Approach for Optimal Cooperative Spectrum Sensing in Sensor-Aided Cognitive Radio Networks
Source: University of Orleans
In a sensor-aided cognitive radio network, collaborating battery-powered sensors are deployed to aid the network in cooperative spectrum sensing. These sensors consume energy for spectrum sensing and therefore deplete their life-time, thus the authors study the key issue in minimizing the sensing energy consumed by such group of collaborating sensors. The IEEE P802.22 standard specifies spectrum sensing accuracy by the detection and false alarm probabilities, hence they address the energy minimization problem under this detection accuracy constraint.
