Time synchronization is important in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). They make wide use of synchronized time in many contexts like data fusion etc. Without synchronizing the sensed data will lose valuable context. Existing time synchronization methods cannot be used with such wireless networks as at the time of their designing such networks were not foreseen. So either present synchronization techniques need to be extended to WSN or are to be approached in different way. This paper proposes an improved algorithm used for WSN in fixed deployment scenario of nodes.
