In this paper, a Cognitive Radio based Medium Access Control (CR-MAC) protocol for wireless sensor networks that utilizes cognitive radio transmission is used. In cognitive radio (CR) networks, identifying the available spectrum resource through spectrum sensing, deciding on the optimal sensing and transmission times, and coordinating with the other users for spectrum access are the important functions of the medium access control (MAC) protocols. In this paper, the sensor nodes are classified

The CR-MAC protocol prioritizes the critical packets access to the transmission medium by transmitting them with higher power while transmitting lower priority packets using lower transmission power. The network throughputs can be improved by increasing number of traffic rate, also the end-to-end delay will minimizes by CR-MAC protocol. And a motive to take advantage of heavy traffic rate which may occur at the receiver, a higher priority packet experience collision only when there are more than one critical packet transmission at the same time slot while non critical packets experience collision when there are more than one transmission at the same time slot.
