On 9th of February 2017, the annual Spectrum Challenge of University of Thessaly was held as the final competition between eleven teams that attented the HY448 class. In this competition the teams demonstrated their USRP-based radio design that could best use a given communication channel in the presence of other dynamic users and interfering signals. The Challenge was not focused on developing new radio hardware, but instead was targeted at finding strategies for guaranteeing successful communication in the presence of other radios that may have conflicting co-existence objectives. The Spectrum Challenge entailed head-to-head competitions between each team’s radio protocol and an opponent’s in a structured testbed environment based on the NITOS infrastructure.
