Time synchronization for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) has been studied in recent years as a fundamental and significant research issue. Time synchronization in a WSN is a critical for accurate time stamping of events and fine-tuned coordination among the sensor nodes to reduce power consumption. Time synchronization in WSNs is crucial to maintain data consistency, coordination, and perform other fundamental operations. Synchronization is considered a critical problem for wireless ad hoc networks due to its de-centralized nature and the timing uncertainties introduced by the imperfections in hardware oscillators and message delays in both physical and Medium Access Control (MAC) layers.
