Spectrum sensing is essential to identify the presence of primary users (PUs) in cognitive radio networks. Cooperative spectrum sensing (CSS) obtained from the diversity of different sensors improves the reliability of decisions made about the presence of PU. Although CSS offers significant advantages, it may introduce some shortcomings including the energy consumption and overhead in the sensing phase. Also, due to the limited life span of batteries, the energy consumption process for… CONTINUE READING
