Abstract—In this paper, we investigate the opportunistic spectrum access for cognitive radio vehicular ad hoc networks (CR-VANETs). The probability distribution of the channel availability is first(More)
—In cognitive radio networks (CRNs), secure information transfer is of paramount importance for primary users (PUs), while secondary users (SUs) mainly desire to ease the starvation for transmission opportunities. To meet such different requirements, cooperation between PUs and SUs can be leveraged and therefore create a win-win situation. In this paper, we(More)
WiFi offloading is envisioned as a promising solution to the mobile data explosion problem in cellular networks. WiFi offloading for moving vehicles, however, poses unique characteristics and challenges, due to high mobility, fluctuating mobile channels, etc. In this paper, we focus on the problem of WiFi offloading in vehicular communication environments.(More)
Providing various wireless connectivities for vehicles enables the communication between vehicles and their internal and external environments. Such a connected vehicle solution is expected to be the next frontier for automotive revolution and the key to the evolution to next generation intelligent transportation systems (ITSs). Moreover, connected vehicles(More)
—In this paper, risk-aware cooperative spectrum access schemes for cognitive radio networks (CRNs) with multiple channels are proposed, whereby multiple primary users (PUs) operating over different channels choose trustworthy secondary users (SUs) as relays to improve throughput, and in return SUs gain transmission opportunities. To study the multi-channel(More)

—In this paper, dynamic spectrum access (DSA) in multi-channel cognitive radio networks (CRNs) is studied. The two fundamental issues in DSA, spectrum sensing and spectrum sharing, for a general scenario are revisited, where the channels present different usage characteristics and the detection performance of individual secondary users (SUs) varies. First,(More)
In this paper, we study opportunistic traffic offloading in a vehicular environment, where the cellular traffic of vehicular users (VUs) is offloaded through carrier-WiFi networks deployed by the mobile network operator (MNO). By jointly considering users' satisfaction, the offloading performance, and the MNO's revenue, two WiFi offloading mechanisms are(More)
