CROWN - Cognitive Radio Oriented Wireless Networks

Coord inated by Queen's University Belfast, Ireland
7th Framework programme
2009 - 2012
EU contribution of 2.1M€


CROWN aims to solve the problem of distributed interference awarness, and of communicating over as many as possible concurrent channels in the same communication spectrum with minimal mutual interference, enabled by smart antenna systems. In order to address inefficient network spectrum regulatory authorities have introduced an initiative to improve utilisation of the licensed spectrum by removing the regulatory barriers, thereby introducing the concept of dynamic spectrum licensing.
