Quickest Spectrum Sensing in Cognitive Radio
Source: North Carolina State University
Quickest detection is applied to frequency spectrum sensing in cognitive radio systems. Distribution change in frequency domain is detected for vacating secondary radio networks from licensed frequency band. A successive refinement based quickest detection is proposed to tackle the problem of unknown parameters of primary radio signal. Cooperative quickest detection is used to enhance the performance of quickest spectrum sensing in secondary radio systems without data fusion centers. Performance is evaluated using theoretical analysis and numerical simulations.
