In heterogeneous wireless sensor networks (HWSN), the probability-based node discovery method may result in inaccuracy and time consumption. Also, the adaptive adjustment of transmission range based on overhead and connectivity may result in additional overhead and time. Hence, in this paper, the author proposes to design a low-cost localization technique using Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) optimization algorithm for HWSN. In this technique, ABC optimization algorithm is applied for deploying the anchor nodes for coverage. Then, the connectivity between the nodes is ensured with minimum transmission power. Since this method involves minimum transmission power level (TPL) and the only minimum set of anchor nodes with strong coverage is involved, it has low-cost utilizing lower power consumption. By simulation result, it has been shown that the proposed method reduces power consumption leading to low cost.
