This paper presents SRBC, a new design for synchronous rendezvous in low-duty-cycle Wireless Sensor Network (WSN).The main idea of SRBC is utilizing the cluster, which includes a part of the sensor nodes in the WSN. Each node in a cluster alters its clock drift as well as its skew towards the central node of the cluster through exchange of their clock information with normal communication. Then it reduces the overhead of the process usual for the traditional time-stamp exchange. In different
