Device-to-device (D2D) communication is an important technique to improve capacity of future wireless networks. Cellular communications, internet of things and intelligent transport systems are key areas that could benefit from reduced end-to-end delay provided by D2D communication. Efficient device discovery is an important precondition to enable D2D communication. In this paper, we propose a space division multiple access (SDMA)-based distributed device discovery protocol in which user equipments (UEs) periodically transmit discovery beacons to each other. The proposed protocol reduces contention in the discovery beacons by allocating resource blocks to the UEs based on their location. Simulations results show that the proposed protocol improves discovery rate and discovery delay in a dense network.
