Comparison Between Energy Detection and Cyclostationary Detection for Transmitter Section of Cognitive Radio

The available electromagnetic radio spectrum is in scarcity and is getting used day to day. On the other hand it has been also found that the used spectrum is not utilized because of its static allocation which is the traditional approach of spectrum management and is not flexible to operate in a specific frequency slot. And most of the useful radio spectrum already used, it is difficult to find free bands to either deploy new services or to improve existing ones Cognitive radio is viewed as a new approach for improving the utilization of a natural resource: the radio electromagnetic spectrum. The paper compares various advantages and disadvantages of Energy detection method and Cyclostationary detection method in cognitive radio. This comparison will help in selecting an opportunistic method for spectrum sensing in cognitive radio.
