The performance of cooperative spectrum sensing (CSS) is limited not only by the imperfect sensing channels but also by the imperfect reporting channels. In order to improve the transmission reliability of the reporting channels, an object based cooperative spectrum sensing scheme with best relay (Pe-BRCS) is proposed, in which the best relay is selected by minimizing the total reporting error probability to improve the sensing performance. Numerical results show that, the reduced total reporting error probability and the improved sensing performance can be achieved by the Pe-BRCS scheme.
