Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Internet of Things (IoT) combined with Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) have experienced a great evolution in the last decade, opening the door to new and enhanced applications that in some scenarios can require high accurate synchronization, such as real time monitoring, ranging, collaborative beamforming, etc. Notice that these networks are set up with small distributed nodes, based on low cost components, that have limited power supply, processing, memory and communications. Due to their poor performance and quality of their clocks, usually time synchronization is in the order of milliseconds and a higher precision is a great challenge. However, using advanced synchronization protocols, emergent communication technologies, such as Ultra Wide Band (UWB), and/or tuning slightly these nodes, we can achieve this time accuracy. This Special Issue on “Accurate synchronization in IoT\” aims to gather all these recent developments and advances to share with the research community.

Submissions are expected to focus on both theoretical and practical aspects and applications. New ideas proposing disruptive approaches are also welcome.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following areas:

Ultra-wideband communications;
Network timing;
Synchronization protocols;
Modulations and symbol correlation;
IEEE 802.15.4 transceivers;
Open-source solutions.
