In this article, a dynamic spectrum access (DSA) method is proposed to perform dynamic prioritized channel allocation in cognitive radio sensor networks (CRSNs) that do not support spectrum handoff. The proposed CRSN supports primary users (PUs) and two types of secondary users (SUs), where one type of SU data traffic has a higher priority. The proposed prioritized channel allocation (PCA) scheme was designed to provide adaptive spectrum access control for CRSNs supporting SU prioritized data types. Compared to the existing DSA schemes, SNO and DSA-C2, the proposed PCA scheme shows an advantage in throughput and fairness in supporting SU prioritized traffic.
