The Deterministic Energy Efficient Protocol for Sensing networks with Adjustable sensing range (ADEEPS) is one of the important protocols for enhancing the lifetime of a wireless sensor network. This protocol however considers the underlying network of homogeneous nature. In this paper, the authors propose hetADEEPS (heterogeneous ADEEPS) protocol that considers the underlying network of heterogeneous nature. The heterogeneous network model is parameterized that has 3-level heterogeneity. The proposed model can describe 1-level, 2-level and 3-leel heterogeneity and accordingly the hetADEEPS is referred as hetADEEPS-1, hetADEEPS-2 and hetADEEPS-3.
