Time Synchronization

The Flooding Time Synchronization Protocol (FTSP) utilizes a single broadcasted message to obtain time synchronization reference points between the sender and its neighbors. Nodes broadcast time synchronization messages periodically and synchronize their clocks to that of an elected leader. The algorithm is robust; it handles topology changes and node failures well. The average per hop error is less than 2 microseconds on the MICA2 platform.
