Wireless sensor network (WSN) has significant role in daily life. Many routing protocols have been proposed in recent advances, based on heterogeneity. Achieving the lifetime, deployment of nodes, fault tolerance ,and energy efficiency are the main research goals . In this paper ,we have proposed Hybrid Energy Efficient Distributed protocol (HEED) with heterogeneity to prolong the network lifetime . The significant improvement has been shown using HEED with heterogeneity in comparison with HEED in terms of energy consumption and data transmission to base station (B. S). The impact of heterogeneity of nodes on wireless sensor network(WSN) is studied and finally, the simulation results demonstrate that HEED with heterogeneity achieves longer lifetime and more better performance than HEED protocol.
