They are deciduous and their leaves turn bronze in the autumn, but they don't fall off the tree. Instead, they hang on until spring when other plants are putting out their new leaves. How do these trees benefit from this different approach to deciduousness? An earlier question in The Last Word gave warnings about eating leftover rice. I have seen this advice before, saying it is not safe to keep cooked rice for more than a short time, even in the fridge.

SPECTRUM SENSING TECHNIQUES FOR COGNITIVE RADIO SYSTEMS WITH MULTIPLE ANTENNAS A Thesis Submitted to the Graduate School of I recently supervised a Master of Science thesis at New York University that dealt with the adoption of social media technologies in a B2B sector. I recommended the student start with the theories of Everett Rogers whose work on the “diffusion of innovations” has been increasingly applied to the marketing of technological innovations, including digital media. In particular, Rogers was concerned that for individuals to adopt an innovation, they must make a conscious decision that overcomes their uncertainty about the product or process. He wrote that the innovation was not in itself enough to convert people. They may need to be convinced through a communication process that provides some evidence of future value, that ensures them that the innovation fits their value system, and that it does so without severely disrupting their established habits and practices. I’ve been following Rogers since I did an undergraduate internship at the East-West Center’s Communication Institute in Hawaii.

In this thesis, we focus on two important design aspects of cooperative spectrum sensing. CSS in cognitive radio networks which are the selection criterion of cooperating secondary users and the fusion technique for combining their local sensing decisions. We propose a novel adaptive user-group assignment algorithm. With an explosion of wireless mobile devices and services, system designers are facing a challenge of spectrum scarcity and high energy consumption. Cognitive radio (CR) is a promising solution for fulfilling the growing demand of radio spectrum using dynamic spectrum access. It has the ability of sensing, allocating, sharing and adapting to the radio environment. In this thesis, an analytical performance evaluation of the machine learning and energy efficient cognitive radio systems has been investigated while taking some realistic conditions into account. Firstly, bio-inspired techniques, including re y algorithm (FFA), fish school search (FSS) and particle swarm optimization (PSO), have been utilized in this thesis to evaluate the optimal weighting vectors for cooperative spectrum sensing (CSS) and spectrum allocation in the cognitive radio systems. This evaluation is performed for more realistic signals that suffer from the non-linear distortions, caused by the power amplifiers. The thesis then takes the investigation further by analysing the spectrum occupancy in the cognitive radio systems using different machine learning techniques. Four machine learning algorithms, including naive bayesian classifier (NBC), decision trees (DT), support vector machine (SVM) and hidden markov model (HMM) have been studied to find the best technique with the highest classification accuracy (CA).

Feb 13, 2015. Enhanced Spectrum Sensing Techniques for Cognitive. Radio Systems. Thesis for the degree of Doctor of Science in Technology to be presented with due permission for public examination and criticism in Tietotalo Building, Auditorium TB109, at Tampere University of Technology, on the 13th of February. With Cognitive Radio being used in a number of applications, the area of spectrum sensing has become increasingly important. As Cognitive Radio technology is being used to provide a method of using the spectrum more efficiently, spectrum sensing is key to this application. The ability of Cognitive Radio systems to access spare sections of the radio spectrum, and to keep monitoring the spectrum to ensure that the Cognitive Radio system does not cause any undue interference relies totally on the spectrum sensing elements of the system. For the overall system to operate effectively and to provide the required improvement in spectrum efficiency, the Cognitive Radio spectrum sensing system must be able to effectively detect any other transmissions, identify what they are and inform the central processing unit within the Cognitive Radio so that the required action can be taken. In many areas cognitive radio systems coexist with other radio systems, using the same spectrum but without causing undue interference. When sensing the spectrum occupancy, the cognitive radio system must accommodate a variety of considerations: There are a number of attributes that must be incorporated into any cognitive radio spectrum sensing scheme. These ensure that the spectrum sensing is undertaken to meet the requirements for the particular applications. The methodology and attributes assigned to the spectrum sensing ensure that the cognitive radio system is able to avoid interference to other users while maintaining its own performance.
In this thesis, we focus on both internal and external sensing in Cognitive Ra- dio CR networks. In internal sensing, individual CRs discover spectrum opportuni- ties via spectrum sensing whereas in external sensing, an external entity provides the spectrum occupancy and related information. For the first, we propose a. These entries are from e-mail, online book lists, and the bibliographies included in books and papers.

Link¨oping Studies in Science and Technology Thesis No. 1417 Topics in Spectrum Sensing for Cognitive Radio Erik Axell Division of Communication Systems The radio frequency (RF) spectrum is a scarce natural resource, currently regulated by government agencies. With the explosive emergence of wireless applications, the demands for the RF spectrum are constantly increasing. On the other hand, it has been reported that localised temporal and geographic spectrum utilisation efficiency is extremely low. Cognitive radio is an innovative technology designed to improve spectrum utilisation by exploiting those spectrum opportunities. This ability is dependent upon spectrum sensing, which is one of most critical components in a cognitive radio system. A significant challenge is to sense the whole RF spectrum at a particular physical location in a short observation time. Otherwise, performance degrades with longer observation times since the lagging response to spectrum holes implies low spectrum utilisation efficiency. Hence, developing an efficient wideband spectrum sensing technique is prime important.
This is to certify that the thesis entitles “Spectrum Sensing Methods in Cognitive Radio” submitted by “Sumit Kumar” Roll no 111EC0176 in partial fulfillment of the requirement for the award of Bachelor of Technology Degree in Electronics and Communication at National. Institute of Technology, Rourkela is an authentic. A brain–computer interface (BCI), sometimes called a neural-control interface (NCI), mind-machine interface (MMI), direct neural interface (DNI), or brain–machine interface (BMI), is a direct communication pathway between an enhanced or wired brain and an external device. BCI differs from neuromodulation in that it allows for bidirectional information flow. BCIs are often directed at researching, mapping, assisting, augmenting, or repairing human cognitive or sensory-motor functions. The papers published after this research also mark the first appearance of the expression brain–computer interface in scientific literature. The field of BCI research and development has since focused primarily on neuroprosthetics applications that aim at restoring damaged hearing, sight and movement. Thanks to the remarkable cortical plasticity of the brain, signals from implanted prostheses can, after adaptation, be handled by the brain like natural sensor or effector channels. The history of brain–computer interfaces (BCIs) starts with Hans Berger's discovery of the electrical activity of the human brain and the development of electroencephalography (EEG). In 1924 Berger was the first to record human brain activity by means of EEG.
Spectrum Sensing in Cognitive Radio A Thesis submitted in partial ful llment of the Requirements for the degree of Master of Technology in Electronics and. Cognitive radio has been proposed as a promising technology to resolve the spectrum scarcity problem by dynamically exploiting underutilized spectrum bands. Cognitive radio technology allows unlicensed users, also called cognitive users (CUs), to exploit the spectrum vacancies at any time with no or limited extra interference at the licensed users. Usually, cognitive radios create networks in order to better identify spectrum vacancies, avoid resultant interference, and consequently, magnify their revenues. One of the main challenges in cognitive radio networks is the high energy consumption, which may limit their implementation especially in battery-powered terminals. The initial step in cognitive transmission is called spectrum sensing. In spectrum sensing, a CU senses the spectrum in order to detect the activity of the licensed users. Spectrum sensing is usually accomplished cooperatively in order to improve the reliability of its results. In cooperative spectrum sensing (CSS), individual sensing results should be exchanged in order to make a global decision regarding spectrum occupancy.
