The main component of Routing Protocol for Low Power and Lossy Networks (RPL) is the trickle timer algorithm. Such algorithm is used to control the flow of messages through the Internet of Things (IoT) network. However, the trickle algorithm is suffering from a short listen problem that causes some nodes to starve for long latency, and delay in propagating transmissions. This article attempts to propose a new Dynamic trickle timer algorithm in order to deal with the listen only period problems. Consequently, this mainly affects the convergence time and power consumption. The simulation results showed a significant enhancement in terms of convergence time using random topology, performance and energy consumption.
