Predictive Channel Selection for over-the-Air Video Transmission Using Software-Defined Radio Platforms
- First Online:
This paper demonstrates a predictive channel selection method by implementing it in software-defined radio (SDR) platforms and measuring the performance using over-the-air video transmissions. The method uses both long term and short term history information in selecting the best channel for data transmission. Controlled interference is generated in the used channels and the proposed method is compared to reference methods. The achieved results show that the predictive method is a practical one, able to increase the throughput and reduce number of collisions and channel switches by using history information intelligently.
