Abstract

Fuzzy Logic is an excellent method to incorporate for making decisions at various levels of cognitive radio under uncertain, incomplete and nonlinear environments. This is one of the most important methods to employ. It is due to the inherent characteristics of wireless channels that produce mostly inaccurate and incomplete information. Thus, the coexisting radios in a particular RF band have to make many decisions using incomplete information especially under cognitive radio access regime. This paper elaborates the concept of fuzzy logic and also investigates a review of the fuzzy logic in the domain of spectrum sensing, power control, resource management for cognitive radio applications. The survey presents the key applications as well as the benefits offered by this technology in comparison to the hard decision making logic i.e.1 and 0 for future wireless communications.
