Project Summary: The aim of the project is to develop non-parametric detection algorithm and analyze the performance in a real-time wireless environment.  In this project, we focus on the study and Monte-Carlo simulations of a new non-parametric scheme to detect the presence of the primary user without knowing its structure and channel information. The work includes the detailed performance evaluation of non-parametric detection scheme in the actual wireless environment. To achieve this, GNURADIO software and the Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP) hardware based wireless test bed will be created to prepare the experimental setup of CR-MIMO (Cognitive Radio – Multiple Input Multiple Output) systems. Thus, the project will provide simulations and an experimental performance evaluation of non-parametric detection schemes to provide opportunistic spectrum access in a cognitive radio environment.
