We propose two generic rendez-vous schemes for dense wireless sensor networks, including the transmitter- and receiver-initiated cycled receiver schemes. Our studies include the analyses and comparisons of their power efficiencies, especially under a fading channel as a realistic physical layer. We believe our modeling strategies as well as the results are applicable to any rendez-vous scheme of the cycled- receiver nature. The paper further proposes precise guidelines and optimization strategies for synchronization in wireless sensor networks.
