ISM spectrum is becoming increasingly populated with various wireless technologies, rendering it a scarce resource. Consequently, wireless coexistence is increasingly vulnerable to new wireless devices attempting to access the same spectrum. This paper presents a novel method for identifying wireless technologies through the use of simple energy detection(More)
The 2.4 GHz ISM band is crowded with a wide variety of wireless devices operating under various access protocols, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) among them. Low power requirements, low cost, and ease of integration have promoted BLE's rapidly growing popularity. BLE applications range from providing wireless interface for monitoring household equipment status(More)
Vehicle classification is a vital measure used to ensure appropriate roadway design as it affects both capacity and pavement endurance. Given that, departments of transportation across the US collect vehicle miles travelled (VMT) for their highways using automatic vehicle classifiers (AVC), and then use these figures for future highway design. Accuracy(More)
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is gaining notoriety as a low cost and low energy standard for wireless communication in the ISM band. The technology has been adapted in a wide range of applications, including smartphones, medical devices, and electrical household equipment. BLE introduces a simplified channel-hopping algorithm as an alternative to Classic(More)
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is a ubiquitous technology allowing applications in healthcare, wellness and house-hold sensors to have wireless functionality. Even though a frequency hopping mechanism is employed by BLE to combat fading and interference in the 2.4 GHz Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) band, a noticeable probability of collision is(More)
Connected cars have telecommunication services similar to those found in homes and offices. Passengers have come to expect efficiently using time spent in their cars working and engaging in entertainment. Fulfilling this desire requires advanced infotainment systems with a variety of capabilities and functions similar to mobile phones. As people become more(More)
Wireless technology has become an invaluable facilitator in many aspects of daily life. Healthcare environments in particular have gained noticeable agility and flexibility by integrating wireless functionality into various medical equipment. As of late, chipsets designed to implement communication standards in the Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM)(More)
The demand for increasingly challenging data rates in cellular networks has motivated the pursuit to exploit abundant bandwidth at the millimeter waves (mmWave) spectrum, which offers large bandwidths and near free-space path loss for line of sight links. However, this solution comes at the cost of limited communication range. Thus, mmWave basestations (BS)(More)
The 2.4 GHz ISM band is crowded with a wide variety of wireless devices operating under various protocols. For many reasons, medical device manufacturers are increasingly incorporating wireless technologies into their devices, many of which operate in the ISM band. Monitoring and characterizing wireless spectrum utilization is vital to better plan wireless(More)
