Time synchronization for predictable and secure data collection in wireless sensor networks
2007 (English)In: Proceedings of MedHocNet, 2007, 165-172 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Wireless sensor networks are trying to findtheir way from relatively undemanding applications suchas environmental monitoring to applications such as industrialcontrol, which have stronger requirements in termsof security and predictability. Predictability cannot beachieved without coordination and the coordination of distributedentities and events requires time synchronization.Towards this end, we present a secure time synchronizationservice, that as our experimental results show does notdegrade time synchronization accuracy. Based on the timesynchronization service we implement time slotted datacollection and present results that show that this way wecan provide a predictable data collection service.
