An interactive framework for cognitive radio applications is proposed in which a user-equipped Android smartphone and a phased array controller are wirelessly tethered. Algorithms on the smartphone pull inertial, geolocation, and networking data to coordinate tracking and beamsteering, and the smartphone itself serves as a wireless communications bridge between the phased array's control module and a remote network server which facilitates bi-directional communication of health monitoring data, state information, and control signals. The system architecture, algorithms, and measured results from beam-steering of a 4,×, 4 micro strip patch array via the Android smartphone are discussed. © 1963-2012 IEEE.
