Abstract

Collaborative spectrum sensing (CSS) plays a vital role in achieving accurate spectrum sensing results in a cognitive radio network (CRN). However, CSS in infrastructure-less CRNs is a challenging task as there is no central authority which aggregates individual sensing reports to take a final decision. Hence, it becomes the responsibility of each node to aggregate sensing reports of other nodes to take the final decision. Towards this end, we present two collaborative spectrum sensing techniques for infrastructure-less CRN based on message passing. The first technique is distributed binary decision-based CSS (DBCSS), in which a node broadcasts its sensing report and uses the binary decisions of its h-hop neighbors for making its final sensing decision. The second one is distributed cluster-based CSS (DCCSS) in which a cluster head consolidates the sensing reports in its cluster into a message and broadcast this message in the network. We support the validity of the proposed schemes through extensive simulation results.
