Cognitive Radio for Short Range Systems based on Ultra-Wideband
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years))Student thesis
Cognitive Radio (CR) has been proposed as a promising and effective technology to improve radio spectrum utilization. It can change its transmitter parameters depending on the environment in which it operate based on interaction. In CR, a number of different methods of spectrum sensing are used to identify the presence of signal transmission. Among them, the multitaper method (MTM), has been investigated in this thesis paper at the same time with other sensing methods, recently seems to be the best choice for spectrum sensing CR because of its accurate identification and estimation, quick computation, and regularization. This thesis paper is examining how CR can be utilized in short range systems based on Ultra-Wideband (UWB). UWB is a promising technology in wireless communication use for high speed data transmission with low power utilization or long distance localization in both military, radar, sensor, data collection, tracking or commercial application. UWB has the ability to move between very low data rate or very high data rate, short range distance or long range distance applications. Impulse radio UWB (IR-UWB) shows some impressive characteristics in short-range communication systems with varieties of throughput option including high data rates. The strong synergy between the aims of CR and features of IR-UWB has been shown in this thesis. Our key objective is to understand how CR can be applied to UWB systems.
