Description: This book chapter discusses a time synchronization scheme for wireless sensor networks that aims to save sensor battery power while maintaining network connectivity for as long as possible. It focuses on aspects of wireless sensor networks. These include designing a hybrid method between reference broadcast synchronization (RBS) and timing-sync protocol for sensor networks (TPSN) to reduce the number of transmissions required to synchronize an entire network, extending single-hop synchronization methods to operate in large multi-hop networks, verifying that the hybrid methods operate as desired by simulating against RBS and TPSN, and maintaining network connectivity and coverage.
