Quality of Service (QoS) assurance in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a tough task, and it is more exciting due to the scarcity of resources. The requirement of different WSN applications running over has different constraints. In QoS, routing protocol the network has to balance the traffic. This paper presents a novel heuristic routing algorithm known as QoS assured Multi-objective Hybrid Routing Algorithm (Q-MOHRA) for Heterogeneous WSN. Q-MOHRA takes into account the link (energy, hop count, link quality indicator etc.) and path (jitter) metrics for optimal path selection. The performance of Q-MOHRA is evaluated through intensive simulation and equated with Simple Hybrid Routing Protocol (SHRP) and Dynamic Multi-objective Routing Algorithm (DyMORA). The metrics such as average energy consumption, residual energy, packet delivery ratio, jitter, and normalized routing load are used for comparison. The performance of Q-MOHRA has been observed to outclass SHRP and DyMORA. It improves the packet delivery ratio by 24.31% as compared to SHRP and 11.86% as compared to DyMORA. Q-MOHRA outperforms DyMORA in terms of average energy consumption by a factor of 8.27%.
