In the ARO Cognitive Protocol Stack Design project we proposed cognitive networking solutions published in international journals and peer-reviewed conferences. We started by focusing on the three main objectives of the proposal, and we extended our work also to other areas related to cognitive networking, opening also new lines of research that was not possible to forecast at the beginning of the project. In a nutshell, we proposed both theoretical and practical solutions to the problems of optimal inter-network cooperation, cooperative opportunistic routing, spectrum sharing in multi-operator networks, sensing and characterizing the traffic in a multi-channel wireless network, interference management in retransmission-based wireless networks, physical-cyber world interactions during unexpected events, random access protocols for multi channel cognitive wireless networks, Call Admission Control scheme for VoIP over IEEE 802.11 and other networks, network-aware retransmission strategy selection, the exploitation of the Android operating system for the design of a wireless mesh network testbed, the design transmission strategies in a cognitive radio system with primary automatic repeat request, and a machine learning based approach to ensure quality of experience.
