In Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) the energy consumed by the sensor network determines the wireless sensor network lifetime. By minimizing the power consumption of each node, the overall energy of the sensor network can be efficiently improved which in turn also improves the network lifetime. This can be achieved by using multi-hop communication. Though the energy consumed is reduced, the delay will be a trade-off in this communication. In this paper, the authors are analyzing the performance of heterogeneous and homogeneous sensors with optimal deployment of sensors.
