  • Introduction

    Cognitive radio wireless sensor network is one of the paradigm application areas where cognitive radio technology can be used for opportunistic spectrum access. It’s a new area of research, but it is fast growing. This special issue is aimed at classifying the existing literatures relating to this fast emerging application area of cognitive radio, highlight the key research that has been done, and indicate open problems. In this issue, merits of cognitive radio wireless sensor networks, the difference between adhoc cognitive radio networks, wireless sensor networks, and cognitive radio wireless sensor networks, potential application areas of cognitive radio wireless sensor networks, challenges and research trend in cognitive radio wireless sensor networks will be investigated by various submissions from authors working in this relatively new research area. Sensing schemes and spectrum access methods suitable for cognitive radio wireless sensor networks are expected to be discussed in this special issue. Finally, this special issue will also include several open research gaps aimed at drawing the attention of readers toward the important issues that need to be addressed before the vision of completely autonomous cognitive radio wireless sensor networks can be achieved.

    Aims and Scope:

    1. Cognitive radio
    2. Wireless sensor network
    3. Opportunistic
    4. Autonomous
    5. Spectrum Sensing
    6. Spectrum access
