Multihopping Multilevel Clustering Heterogeneity-Sensitive Optimized Routing Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks

Algorithm 1

Cluster-Heads selection by HCA.
Initialization;
Nodes define their type after random distribution and
compare their , coordinates with defined boundary by
radius of BS
Set of CHs denoted by which is empty at initialization;

if  threshold is greater than random number
then
tag is as a CH;
set = +1;
