This paper provides an overview on the research activities in autonomous functionalities for cognitive radio and networks, carried out in FP7/E3-project. The identified main research areas within this topic include opportunistic spectrum access and autonomous self-x functionalities for communication nodes. Opportunistic spectrum access delineates innovative topics concerning distributed cooperative spectrum sensing, collaborative MAC algorithms, distributed radio resource management algorithms, and control mechanisms for the opportunistic spectrum access. In autonomous self-x functionalities the research covers cognitive device management, autonomous RAT and operator selection and self-x features for autonomous elements, including autonomous decision making functionalities for RAT protocol configuration, negotiation on missing RAT protocol components, and functionality for dynamic configuration of RAT protocol components.
