Dr. Y.C. Wu received the Research Output Prize 2011-2012, based on his paper ‘Clock Synchronization of Wireless Sensor Networks’ published in IEEE Signal Processing Magazine on January 2011.
This award-winning paper takes a signal processing approach to the network clock synchronization problem, leading to a number of significant advances in this field. This paper demonstrates that common statistical processing methods can be used to interpret and assess the performance of many existing clock synchronization protocols proposed from network protocol point-of-view. Advanced signal processing techniques are also shown to enable optimal clock synchronization algorithms to be obtained under challenging scenarios.
The Research Output Prize is to identify and recognize the best research outputs published or created in the preceding calendar year. No more than one Prize will be conferred to each Faculty each year.
