Abstract: Collaborative spectrum sensing for detection of white spaces helps in realizing reliable and efficient spectrum sensing algorithms, which results in efficient usage of primary spectrum in secondary fashion. Collaboration among cognitive radios improves probability of detecting a spectral hole as well as sensing time. Available literature, in this domain, uses Gudmundson’s exponential correlation model for correlated lognormal shadowing under both urban and suburban environments. However, empirical measurements verify that the suburban environment can better be modeled through double exponential correlation model under suburban environments in comparison to Gudmundson’s exponential correlation model. Collaboration among independent sensors provides diversity gains. Asymptotic detection probability for collaborating users under suburban environments using double exponential correlation model has been derived. Also, the Region of Convergence performance of collaborative detection is presented which agrees well with analytical derivations.
