Under the cognitive networking architecture, this paper presents an opportunistic routing protocol for cognitive radio in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), which can deliver higher performance and efficiency in multihop wireless communications. Cognitive Networking with Opportunistic Routing, (CNOR), opportunistically routes traffic across paths over all available spectrum. A discrete event simulator is applied to evaluate and compare the proposed scheme against three other routing protocols:

It is shown that by integrating opportunistic routing with cognitive radio much better results can be obtained, with respect to energy consumption, throughput and latency.
