Method, Computer Program Product and System for the Tick Synchronization of Nodes in a Wireless Multi-hop Network
The invention relates to a method for the tick synchronization of a node of a wireless multi-hop network with at least one other node of said multi-hop network, said network comprising a plurality of nodes being arbitrarily connected, said method comprising the steps of: receiving a synchronization tick frame from a node (N1-N14), said synchronization tick frame containing a round number n round , said round number n round representing the number of hops n hops said synchronization tick frame has performed since its generation; and determining a node reference tick t syncNode corresponding to a master reference tick t syncMaster using said predetermined round number n round and the start time t rxTick of receipt of said synchronization tick frame in said node (N1-N14). The invention furthermore relates to a computer program product and a system for tick-synchronizing a wireless multi-hop network.
