Over the past decade, experimentation for wireless sensor network (WSN) has been widely used to enrich the learning experience of educators and learners. Our remote triggered WSN laboratory is a multi-set, multi-group, WSN experimental setup that provides an intuitive web-based interface to carry out remote experimentation as well as code editing by registered users. This paper presents a multi-level time based scheduling algorithm for our lab which provides optimum utilization, performance and service. Our WSN testbed consists of more than 150 sensor nodes deployed in indoor and outdoor environment. Energy efficiency and delay optimization of WSN testbed are ensured in the design which employs TDMA and state transition schemes. We have implemented and tested two approaches for energy efficiency namely an on demand scheduling and a TDMA based approach which incorporates state transition and CDMA. The performance evaluation result shows that 78% power consumption has been reduced in second approach compared to first. The paper details the implementation of energy efficiency with dynamic scheduling for our real-time remote triggered WSN.
