About wideband sensing hardware and the winners of the 3rd Smart Radio Challenge
I also would like to comment on the cognitive radio architecture winner of the Smart Radio Challenge. From the press release:
The system consists of portable base stations – each slightly larger than a laptop computer – and mobile communication units. A central command station is able to monitor the positions of all the rescuers in real time – including indoor locations where GPS signals don’t work – and issue instructions for their proper coordination in the rescue operation, even if there’s no existing mobile phone service."
