ABSTRACT
We present a time synchronization scheme for wireless sensor
networks that aims to conserve sensor battery power while
maintaining network connectivity for as long as possible. The
proposed method creates a hierarchical tree by flooding the
sensor network from a designated source point. It then uses a
hybrid algorithm derived from the Timing-sync Protocol for
Sensor Networks (TSPN) and the Reference Broadcast
Synchronization method (RBS) to periodically synchronize
sensor clocks by minimizing the number of required
transmissions. In multi-hop ad-hoc networks, a depleted
sensor will drop information from all other sensors that route
data through it, decreasing the physical area being monitored
