An efficient spectrum access and medium access control (MAC) design is required to enable wireless sensor network (WSN) with cognitive Internet of Things (IoT) that enables presence of sensor network with existing wireless infrastructure. Designing spectral, energy efficient and fair spectrum access design for IoT in CR-WSN is challenging especially for heterogeneous mobile CR-WSN.  Existing model induces high collision and energy overhead. As a result, they are not efficient in utilizing spectrum. To overcome the research issues, this paper proposes a hybrid spectrum access model (HSAM) for multi-channel heterogeneous mobile CR-WSN. Next it elaborates on an accurate feasible channel accessible likelihood estimation. Further, we present a game theory model for HSAM for existence of fine-grained Nash equilibrium. Experiments are conducted to evaluate the performance of HSAM-CRWSN over existing model. The outcome shows HSAM-CRWSN attains significant performance improvement over state-of-art technique in terms of energy efficiency, throughput, successful packet transmission and packet collision. The HSAM-CRWSN improves the overall spectrum efficiency of CR-WSN.
