As discussed in earlier chapters, Impulse Radios within communication networks using Pulse Coupled Oscillator (PCO) global synchronization can be efficiently duty cycled for significant power savings. In this chapter we discuss the emergent dynamic behavior in the PCO network to enable some of the novel applications par-ticular to this type of network.
