Compressive sensing is a revolutionary idea proposed recently to achieve much lower sampling rate for sparse signals. For large wireless sensor networks, the events are relatively sparse compared with the number of sources. Because of deployment cost, the number of sensors is limited, and due to energy constraint, not all the sensors are turned on all the(More)
Spectrum sensing, which aims at detecting spectrum holes, is the precondition for the implementation of cognitive radio. Collaborative spectrum sensing among the cognitive radio nodes is expected to improve the ability of checking complete spectrum usage. Due to hardware limitations, each cognitive radio node can only sense a relatively narrow band.(More)
Collaborative sensing in cognitive radio networks can significantly improve the probability of detecting the transmission of primary users. In current collaborative sensing schemes, all collaborative secondary users are assumed to be honest. As a consequence, the system is vulnerable to attacks in which malicious secondary users report false detection(More)
A real-time cognitive radio network testbed is being built. This is the first paper to capture the overall picture of this project. Project scope and philosophy, design architecture, hardware platform, and key algorithms are reported. The use of cognitive radio network for smart grid is for the first time proposed in this paper. This unique testbed is ideal(More)
This paper examines the performance of decision-feedback-based iterative channel estimation and multiuser detection in channel coded aperiodic direct sequence code division multiple-access systems operating over multipath fading channels. First, explicit expressions describing the performance of channel estimation and parallel(More)
—Collaborative spectrum sensing in cognitive radio networks has been proposed as an efficient way to improve the performance of primary users detection. In collaborative spectrum sensing schemes, secondary users are often assumed to be trustworthy. In practice, however, cognitive radio nodes can be compromised. Compromised secondary users can report false(More)
