In Cognitive Radio (CR) ad hoc networks, secondary users (SU) attempt to utilize valuable spectral resources without causing significant interference to licensed primary users (PU). While there is a large body of research on spectrum opportunity detection, exploitation, and adaptive transmission in CR, most existing approaches focus only on avoiding PU activity when making sensing decisions. Since the myopic sensing strategy results in congestion and poor throughput, several collision-avoidance… Expand
