A typical WSN is composed of a large number of computing devices known as nodes embodying limited set of resources. These nodes are interfaced with sensors whose job is to sense and monitor the surrounding environment for various purposes and disseminate sensed data to some special computing devices called destination or base-stations in a coordinated manner where the destination nodes further process and analyze the reported data to draw conclusions about the reported activity. Since the sensors in Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) operate independently, their local clocks may not be synchronized with one another. This can cause difficulties when trying to integrate and interpret information sensed at different nodes. Time synchronization of WSNs is crucial to maintain data consistency, coordination, and perform other fundamental operations.
