A New Approach for Time Synchronization in Wireless Sensor Networks: Pairwise Broadcast Synchronization

  title={A New Approach for Time Synchronization in Wireless Sensor Networks: Pairwise Broadcast Synchronization},
  author={Kyoung-Lae Noh and Erchin Serpedin and Khalid A. Qaraqe},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications},
This letter proposes an energy-efficient clock synchronization scheme for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) based on a novel time synchronization approach. Within the proposed synchronization approach, a subset of sensor nodes are synchronized by overhearing the timing message exchanges of a pair of sensor nodes. Therefore, a group of sensor nodes can be synchronized without sending any extra messages. This paper brings two main contributions: 1. Development of a novel synchronization approach… CONTINUE READING
