Internet of things (IoT) has changed human lifestyle by introducing various smart applications. In recent years, sophisticated automation systems have become an essential outcome of the IoT paradigm. Due to the characteristics of IoT applications, devices need to communicate with each other seamlessly. New networking technologies and architectures have also been designed to support the communication requirements of current and future IoT devices. Wireless and radio communications are very desirable for achieving communication among the devices with various proximity. As there is a rapid growth in the number of IoT devices networked based on wireless transmission, radio frequency resource needs to be allocated efficiently to enhance radio spectrum utilization. In wireless connection, Cognitive Radio (CR) is an opportunistic radio access technology targeted to improve the spectrum usage and to mitigate the excessive contention of radio communication. In this chapter, we have identified the functional similarities between IoT and CR, and the challenges that are important to be addressed to integrate CR technology for IoT. We have also proposed a framework for cognitive radio enabled IoT that provides efficient radio spectrum utilization for IoT.
