Wireless Sensor Network (WSNs) as the usage and development of wireless sensor network the problems related to wireless sensor network are apparent. The main issue considers here is the lifetime. When we consider about the homogeneous wireless sensor network several methodology available but in to maximize the lifetime of the wireless sensor network is progress in a slow space. The Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) algorithm which is swarm intelligence based technique is used to maximize the lifetime of the heterogeneous wireless sensor. This methodology is based on finding maximum number of disjoint connected covers that satisfy both sensing coverage and the network connectivity. The ABC technique involves three types of bees, employee bee. Onlookers and scout bee. The proposed method has been applied to variety of wireless sensor network. Based on the functions performed by these bees the energy consumption can be reduced and the lifetime of the heterogeneous WSNs is increased.
