Cooperative spectrum sensing is a promising technology for spectrum sensing with superior performance. Previous work has assumed that secondary users (SUs) are synchronous with the primary users' (PUs) network. However, on one hand, the SUs may have no information about the PUs' communication protocols. On the other hand, in some cases communications among PUs are not based on synchronous operation. In order to address such problems, an asynchronous cooperative sensing scheme is proposed. In… CONTINUE READING
