In this paper, the authors propose a robust spectrum sensing scheme for cognitive radio networks. The proposal performs spectrum sensing simultaneously over the total channels rather than a single channel at a time. It first estimates the number of occupied channels via the exponentially embedded family criterion, and then determines the occupancy status for each channel by sample power. The proposed method is robust to noise uncertainty since noise power estimation is avoided. Simulations demonstrate that their approach is robust to noise uncertainty and outperforms existing sensing methods.
