 The main target of FP7-CREW is to establish an open federated test platform, which facilitates experimentally-driven research on advanced spectrum sensing, cognitive radio and cognitive networking strategies in view of horizontal and vertical spectrum sharing in licensed and unlicensed bands.

The CREW federated platform incorporates 5 individual wireless testbeds incorporating diverse wireless technologies (heterogeneous ISM, heterogeneous licensed, cellular, wireless sensor, heterogeneous outdoor) augmented with State-of-the-Art cognitive sensing platforms.

The combined expertise, software and hardware that is available in the CREW federated platform allows the experimental optimization and validation of cognitive radio and cognitive networking concepts in a diverse range of scenarios, including but not limited to: radio environment sensing for cognitive radio spectrum sharing, horizontal resource sharing between heterogeneous networks in the ISM bands, cooperation in heterogeneous networks in licensed bands, robust cognitive sensor networks, and measuring the impact of cognitive networking on primary cellular systems.

The CREW project started in October 2010 with a consortium of 7 partners (iMinds, imec, Trinity College Dublin, Technische Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Dresden, Thales Communications and Security France, EADS). In July 2011, an eighth partner joined (Jožef Stefan Institute). To extend the use of the federated testbeds to external researchers, there were/are three open calls: one in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
