Cognitive radio network (CRN) is designed to improve the low resource utilization problem caused by the fixed spectrum allocation policy used today. In CRNs, secondary users (SUs) sense spectrum holes and adaptively use the frequency band. In this paper, we tackle the Quality of Service (QoS) routing problem in wireless ad hoc CRNs. We consider such factors as available time, frequency bands, transmission range, error rate, primary user (PU) interruption rate and transmission range, and design a new QoS routing metric for wireless ad hoc CRNs. We then evaluate the performance via simulations in terms of the average and maximum end-to-end delays. The results show that our proposed metric outperforms existing solutions, including probability based, bit-rate based, and hop-count based methods.
