In this paper the problem of detecting the presence of similar OFDM signals, i.e. WLAN and WiMAX signals, in an Open Spectrum scenario is faced. The identification of the channel occupancy and the signal classification are performed by using a fast detector based on a single spectral correlation function estimator and a multi-class support vector machine(More)
In this correspondence, the achievable rates of the so called “multiple-input multiple-output interference channel,” exploited by a couple of single antenna primary terminals and two antenna cognitive radios under specific interference constraints, are analyzed. In particular, by assuming perfect channel state information at the cognitive(More)
The integration of smart antennas in wireless sensor networks is a challenging and very attractive technical solution to improve the system capacity, the quality of service, and the power control. In this paper, some benefits coming from such an integration are experimentally assessed dealing with a set of test scenarios. Finally, some conclusions are(More)
In the present contribution the problem of signal interception in a virtual MIMO scenario is considered. A possible distributed signal interception algorithm which is able to detect and discriminate between two similar OFDM signals is analyzed. Distributed and stand-alone algorithms are compared through simulations in a multipath environment and the(More)
| Application of wireless technologies in the smart home is dealt with by pointing out advantages and limitations of available approaches for the solution of heterogeneous and coexisting problems related to the distributed monitoring of the home and the inhabitants. Some hot challenges facing the exploitation of noninvasive wireless devices for user(More)
