Cognitive Software Radios (COGNETs)

Funding source: European Commission, FP7-MC-IEF, Excellence Science.

Principal Investigator: Prof. Baltasar Beferull-Lozano

Topic: The three main objectives of COGNETs are the following ones:

  1. Fundamental limits and design of novel algorithms for distributed spectrum sensing in WSN aided-cognitive radios, enabling them to make decisions on whether they are located in actual spectrum holes or not.
    2. Interference management techniques enabling cognitive radio terminals to co-exist with primary licensed technology without causing harmful interference.
    3. Design and Implementation of Cognitive Software Radio nodes based on USRP Ettus nodes.

Role: Coordinator and leading WP on distributed detection, resource allocation and implementation for the Software Defined Radios

Period: 2011- 2013
