Brief description Demand on wireless traffic is estimated to increase more than one thousand-fold in the next 10 years. As existing networks are quickly becoming overloaded, this project aims to improve radio spectrum utilisation by harvesting temporarily unused spectrum holes to accommodate future traffic. The proposed spectrum harvesting system is cost-effective as it will rely on a software that runs on users' devices to sense and report spectrum holes to mobile service providers. An unprecedented communications framework that incentivises both users and service providers to harvest and trade/share radio spectrum holes will be developed. It will reduce the costs of the radio spectrum, allowing cheaper and better mobile data services for the Australian public.
