Indoor localization with Uplink Time Difference of Arrival (U-TDoA) provides good scalability, high updates rates and high accuracy. However, clock errors lead to localization errors and synchronization is important. In this paper, we design and implement wired and wireless synchronization and provide a comparison between them. We design and implement a wireless synchronization with clock drift compensation. For wired and wireless synchronization, we discuss reasons for clock deviation that lead to localization errors. We evaluate both approaches in a U-TDoA measurement setup. Finally, we provide recommendations for wired and wireless synchronization. Additionally to localization, wireless synchronization is suited for Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA).
