RF Monitoring

Chun-Ta Kung, Neeraj Venkatesan            Advisor: Ivan Seskar

To develop a framework for cooperative spectrum sensing on the USRP2 platform using the Universal Hardware Driver (UHD)

To utilize multiple USRP2’s in a cooperative manner to determine occupancy of a particular segment of

    RF Spectrum

To include a central control system for the USRP2’s within the framework as well as allow for a data aggregation center where post-processing as well as spectrum occupancy decisions are made

To provide a data compression method at each node before sending sensing data to the data aggregator to minimize required bandwidth and storage

If time allows, to provide some sort of visualization tool for the spectrum sensing data as it streams
