Random Broadcast Based Distributed Consensus Clock Synchronization for Mobile Networks
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2015

Clock synchronization is a crucial issue for mobile ad hoc networks due to the dynamic and distributed nature of these networks. In this paper, employing affine models for local clocks, a random broadcast based distributed consensus clock synchronization algorithm is proposed. In the absence of transmission delays, we theoretically prove the convergence of the proposed scheme, which is further illustrated by numerical results. In addition, it is concluded from simulations that the proposed scheme is scalable and robust to transmission delays as well as different accuracy requirements.
