Spectrum sensing is the key enabling technology for cognitive radio networks. The main objective of spectrum sensing is to provide more spectrum access opportunities to cognitive radio users without interfering with the operations of the licensed network. Hence, recent research has been focused on the interference avoidance problem. Moreover, current radio frequency (RF) front-ends cannot perform sensing and transmission at the same time, which inevitably decreases their transmission…

Spectrum sensing in cognitive radio networks: Up-to-date techniques and future challenges
TLDR
It is shown that cooperative spectrum sensing can improve the cognitive radio network performance by increasing spectrum efficiency and providing a better detection accuracy, however, the benefits come at the cost of increased overhead traffic, power consumption, complexity, and the need for control channels.
