CREW: for a more efficient use of the wireless spectrum

The wireless spectrum is a very limited resource. Free networks such as Wi-Fi and sensor networks compete for a transmission opportunity in usually overcrowded unlicensed bands, whilst licensed ones are often being underused. This was the issue that led to the creation of CREW, a European research project (2010-2015) coordinated by Ingrid Moerman (imec - IBCN - Ghent University) which completed its success story last September.
