Improving the Performance of MAC Protocols in Cognitive Radio Networks through Sensing Accuracy Enhancement

Abstract

In this paper, we aim at enhancing the sensing capabilities of a software implementation of a Carrier Sense Multiple Access (CSMA) based MAC protocol by using a dedicated spectrum sensing engine provided by imec. This work is a part of the European project-Cognitive Radio Experimentation World (CREW).
