NESL Technical Report #: 2008-10-5
Abstract: The scientific community has long envisioned vast networks of sensors each attached to a small battery operated micro- processor replete with a radio communications transceiver. For these scientists, each of the sensor terminals is called a node and the entirety of nodes is termed a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). WSN's have proven effective in a plethora of application domains spanning climate science  to mil- itary operations . In applications where remote long- term operation, broad geographic coverage, low-cost (e.g. expendable hardware), and rapid deployment are vital, the WSN ooffers a practical and efficient solution. To achieve remote distributed sensing and computation the WSN must achieve synchrony among its component nodes.
