Neighbour discovery is an important process in device-to-device (D2D) communications. In cellular networks, D2D discovery signals are multiplexed with cellular signals causing in-band emission interference (IEI). IEI degrades D2D user equipments (DUEs) discovery range and cellular user equipments (CUEs) throughput. In this paper, a new discovery method is proposed by applying power control strategy. In this method, DUEs are arranged into two groups depending on whether the received power of a reference signal sent from the based station (BS) to DUEs is larger than a given threshold. A high received reference signal at a DUE indicates strong IEI which may be caused by the DUE to the BS. Then, Group-1 contains DUEs which cause low IEI while Group-2 contains DUEs which cause severe IEI. A new strategy to mitigate IEI is proposed for Group-2. Firstly, CUEs send scheduling information in predefined blocks. Secondly, DUEs estimate the symbols which are orthogonal to CUE. This will assist DUEs to boost their discovery transmission power, reduce IEI and improve the discovery performance.
