    This article discusses the current state-of-the-art research on CRV networks. While it is envisaged that this technology will help to realize high-bandwidth multimedia applications, the research on CRV networks is still at a preliminary stage. The spectrum management functions proposed for general-purpose CR networks will need to be revisited by taking into account the characteristics of the vehic... View full abstract»

    We address the problem of interference between portable cognitive emergency wireless networks (PCENs) operating in the TV white space (TVWS). We use stochastic-geometric model to gauge the expected reduction of effective service area caused by the interference between adjacent PCENs. The modeling steps are introduced in a tutorial fashion, and our results reveal the intrinsic relationship that PCE... View full abstract»

    Wireless communications technologies play an irreplaceable role in emergency and disaster relief situations. It is generally acknowledged that the existing public safety (PS) wireless communications facilities frequently fall short of meeting users' needs in many critical situations. Emergency scenarios usually lead to exceptionally high traffic loads, and the lack of network capacity is one of th... View full abstract»

    In this article, an experimental study of the less studied topic of distributed OSA implementation have been presented. Hardware technologies do not provide the cognitive transceiver requirements needed to exploit OSA to its full potential, suboptimal OSA approaches developed to target that low-complexity transceivers can achieve significant performance gains compared to approaches theoretically o...

    In this article, we have examined how cyclostationary signatures can be used to create a novel method of dynamic control channel design, and we have shown how this design enables the construction of impromptu network coalitions between geographically distributed independent service providers. The system proposed in this article is an example of a more decentralized and ad hoc network construction ... View full abstract»

    A vertically integrated approach is presented to evaluate the performance of cognitive radio (CR) systems. The approach consists of three pillars: measurement, modeling, and emulation (MME). This integrated approach enables the reproduction of the radio environment in laboratory conditions and aims to guarantee the same performance results as one would obtain in the field. This article provides a ... View full abstract»

    In this article, we employ techniques that allow cognitive radios to familiarize themselves with an unknown spectrum environment, recognizing specific, moderately utilized spectrum bands that present an opportunity to be exploited using learning-enhanced dynamic spectrum access (DSA) techniques. Much has been made of the potential for cognitive radios to operate in white spaces, in which secondary... View full abstract»

    Learning mechanisms are essential for the attainment of experience and knowledge in cognitive radio (CR) systems, exposed to high dynamics with often unpredictable states [1]. These mechanisms can be associated with user and device profiles, context, and decisions. The focus learning user preferences is the dynamic inference and estimation of current and future user preferences. The acquisition an... View full abstract»

    The radio communications spectrum has been commonly considered a scarce resource. Measurements, however, revealed that spectral resources are actually under used most of the time. Therefore, advanced radio resource management (RRM) techniques try to balance the spectrum occupation. Increasing the system capacity further requires the coordination of several factors in the wireless business and the ... View full abstract»
