Time synchronization affects many robots. Robots have more computers and sensors, so keeping everything in sync is important. Trying to look through log files where all of the times are skewed is not fun and makes processing difficult. Merging sensor data together with GPS can also be disastrous if the times are offset. Further complicating time synchronization is that the robots are often not connected to the internet, so utilizing public time servers will not work.
