Spectrum sensing is a key functionality in Cognitive Radio (CR) networks. A key issue of the spectrum sensing functionality in Cognitive Radio (CR) networks is the ability of tuning the sensing time parameters, i.e., the sensing time and the transmission time, according to the Primary User (PU) network dynamics. In fact, these parameters influence both the spectrum sensing efficiency and the PU interference avoidance. This issue becomes even more challenging in presence of PU mobility.
