Add seminar to my diary


Cognitive radios are a promising solution for the spectrum scarcity problem. These devices shall opportunistically use the spectrum left available by primary users without interfering with them. This task requires that cognitive radios be able to collect information about the environment that they operate, and thus take decisions about when and how the spectrum should be used. In this talk, Professor José Rezende will present a number of works that he has developed together with his research team concerning cognitive radios.
