Recent research on heterogeneous Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) has been studied and employed in many new applications viz., medical monitoring, automotive safety, agriculture precision and many more. In this paper, a novel energy efficient multihop communication protocol (EEMCP) for clustered heterogeneous WSNs has proposed to analyze the network lifetime and stability. EEMCP consider heterogeneous nodes with different initial energy levels and adopt multihop communication approach for data communication from cluster heads to the base station. Simulation results show that EEMCP extends the network lifetime and stability by balancing energy consumption of the network.
