Firefly Clock Synchronization in an 802.15.4 Wireless Network

  title={Firefly Clock Synchronization in an 802.15.4 Wireless Network},
  author={Robert Leidenfrost and Wilfried Elmenreich},
  journal={EURASIP J. Emb. Sys.},
This paper describes the design and implementation of a distributed self-stabilizing clock synchronization algorithm based on the biological example of Asian Fireflies. Huge swarms of these fireflies use the principle of pulse coupled oscillators in order to synchronously emit light flashes to attract mating partners. When applying this algorithm to real sensor networks, typically, nodes cannot receive messages while transmitting, which prevents the networked nodes from reaching synchronization… CONTINUE READING
