In this paper, efficient energy saving scheme and corresponding algorithm is designed and developed in order to provide reasonable energy consumption and to improve the network lifetime for wireless sensor network systems. A hybrid data-gathering protocol that dynamically switches between the event-driven data-reporting and data-driven data-reporting schemes is proposed. Typically, communication is the most energy-consuming operation apart from sensing and processing. In fact, it dominates the total energy consumption, so one should try to minimize the nodes' transmissions to reduce the total energy usage at the sensor nodes.
