An approach called self-synchronizing communication protocols (SSPs) is presented for handling synchronization problems in communication protocols. It is found that many synchronization errors are caused by process collision, which arises when two or more processes simultaneously transmit conflicting messages. A synchronization mechanism that allows processes to detect and resolve collisions du
