An Energy Efficient Spectrum Sensing in Cognitive Radio Wireless Sensor Networks

by   Atchutananda Surampudi, et al.

The cognitive radio wireless sensor networks have become an integral part of communicating spectrum information to the fusion center, in a cooperative spectrum sensing environment. A group of battery operated sensors or nodes, sensing information about spectrum availability in the radio links, needs an energy efficient strategy to pass on the binary information. A proper routing method through intelligent decision making can be a good solution. In this paper, an energy efficient routing protocol has been introduced and a performance comparison is made with the existing system in terms of its energy consumption. The proposed routing technique considers both uniform and non-uniform clustering strategies and proves to be an energy efficient method of communication.
