Abstract: As the massive deployment of the heterogeneous IoT devices in the coexisting environment such as smart homes，Traditional channel-based spectrum sharing algorithms such as CSMA has great limitations to further optimize spectrum utilization. Therefore, exploring more efficient spectrum sensing algorithm becomes hot topic these years. This paper proposes Subcarrier-Sniffer, which utilizes Channel State Information (CSI) to sense the subcarrier-level detailed status of the spectrum. In order to evaluate the performance of Subcarrier-Sniffer, we implemented Subcarrier-Sniffer by USRP B200min, and the experimental results show that when the distance between Subcarrier-Sniffer and the monitored devices is not great than 7 m, the accuracy of subcarrier-level spectrum sensing could achieve 100% in our settings.
