Yonghua Wang, Pin Wan, Sheng Ouyang, Fei Yuan, Yuli Fu


A spectrum handoff model and optimal channel decision method based on Extenics have been proposed in order to resolve the optimal channel decision problem of spectrum handoff in Cognitive Radio Sensor Networks. The method of matter-element Extenics is used to analyses the spectrum handoff process. The channel state through the spectrum sensing and status information of the primary users is analyzed and transformed by matter-element Extenics. Then the parameters to determine the best channel are calculated on the basis of Extenics correlation function. Finally the optimal channel is selected. The simulation results show that the proposed method can improve spectrum utilization efficiency of Cognitive Radio Sensor Networks and can reduce the interrupt probability of second users.
