Time synchronization between SOKUIKI sensor and host computer using timestamps

Abstract

Time is crucial in applications such as sensor data fusion, autonomous mobility and SLAM. However clocks at end systems are rarely synchronized and often running at different speeds. Lack of synchronization therefore reduces the accuracy of sensor readings. The SOKUIKI scanning laser range finder allows acquiring time values by timestamping range readings. Our work consists in a method for time synchronization, with clock skew estimation, between a laser range finder sensor and a host computer.
