This paper introduces a novel interval scheduling and efficient topology control scheme in wireless sensor networks for long-term periodical monitoring applications. Due to the unreliable nature of wireless communication, it is essential to design a new management system and efficient scheduling algorithm for such networks, as to achieve network energy efficiency, reliability, and timeliness. In this paper, we introduce the concept of dynamic interval scheduling algorithm that optimizes the data delivery ratio and communication energy consumption. And also we propose an efficient scheme of sensor network management on 6LoWPAN by considering the property of the event-driven WSN.
