Paper Title:
Schemes for Indoor Network Synchronization in UWB Positioning
  Abstract

Location Positioning is a major technology for ubiquitous computing. A research on Location Positioning using UWB is ongoing. In order to construct an indoor location network, synchronization of base stations is very important. NTP is popularly used as a clock synchronization protocol ranging from LAN to WAN. The Master-Slave scheme, however, is the simplest method for synchronizing an indoor network that uses UWB. In this paper, we compare and analyze the NTP and Master-Slave schemes according to the statistical channel model for an indoor multi-path propagation environment. Error ranges are calculated at various circumstances such as when the indoor network expands from one primary base station to several base stations. In particular, we compare the correctness of the NTP and Master-Slave synchronization methods. We have found that NTP is a more reasonable synchronization protocol in UWB positioning.
