Cognitive radio ad hoc networks can be used to solve the problems of limited available spectrum and inefficient spectrum usage by adaptively changing their transmission parameters. Routing protocol design has a significant impact on the network performance. However, an efficient protocol that takes account of primary user flows and the long-term channel assignment issue in route selection is still missing. In this paper, we propose AODV-cog, a cognitive routing protocol for CSMA/CA ad hoc networks based on AODV. AODV-cog chooses a route by considering the effect on the primary users, available channel bandwidth and link reliability. AODV-cog also takes account of future channel utilization which is an important but underexplored issue. AODV-cog switches channels for secondary user flows when network congestion occurs. We use theoretical analysis and computer simulations to show the advantage of AODV-cog over existing alternatives.
