In cognitive radio, the secondary users are able to sense the spectral environment and use this information to opportunistically access the licensed spectrum in the absence of the primary users. In this paper, we present an experimental study that evaluates the performance of two different spectrum sensing techniques to detect primary user signals in real(More)
In this paper we investigate two statistical estimators for the number of nodes in the Chord peer-to-peer system and one estimator for the number of information items stored in the system. The first estimator of the number of nodes is based on the Maximum Likelihood Estimation (MLE) technology and the second is based on the Methods of Moments (MM). We(More)
In this work, the energy consumption in the cooperative spectrum sensing is analysed. The analysis also covers the detection quality assessment and the definition of the energy efficiency (EE) metric. It is shown how cooperation among the sensing nodes affects the EE and how relaying of sensing information and node selection influences the detection(More)
—Cooperative spectrum sensing has been proposed as a solution to increase the sensing function accuracy in cog-nitive radio networks, but the research has, so far, mainly focused on static scenarios, all but neglecting the impact of mobility on spectrum sensing. In this work a novel cooperative spectrum sensing scheme for mobile cognitive networks, based on(More)
