Sensing or Transmission: Causal Cognitive Radio Strategies with Censorship

This paper introduces a novel opportunistic transmission strategy for cognitive radios (CRs). The primary user (PU) is assumed to transmit in a time-slotted manner according to a two-state Markov model, and the CR is either sensing, that is, obtaining a causal, noisy observation of a primary user (PU) state, or transmitting, but not both at the same time… CONTINUE READING
