Spectrum is very valuable resource of communication field. To sense the unoccupied spectrum gap is essential task of cognitive radio. There are so many spectrum sensing algorithm available for cognitive radio. This paper describes cyclostationary based detection method of spectrum sensing for cognitive radio. Cyclostationary based detection method is used to sense unoccupied spectrum gap through cyclic autocorrelation function in Simulink.
