In this paper a decentralized synchronization algorithm for ad hoc networks is presented. The algorithm is derived from a model describing synchronization phenomena in biological self-organized systems. Constraints in a wireless environment, such as the fact that a node cannot receive and transmit simultaneously (deafness), the duration of a synchronization message and the delay required at the receiver to decode this message, are taken into account. When applied to meshed networks where nodes… CONTINUE READING
