Abstract: In this paper, the Aerial Platform (AP) Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is modelled and demonstrated for surveillance applications such as traffic monitoring and management. The system geometrical model and coverage parameters of AP such as coverage diameter, beamwidth of beam patter, and coverage area per AP are investigated where the AP network design equations are deduced for several WSN scenarios which include the coverage of rural areas linked by highways and urban cities as well. Also, the sensor data rate and density in the coverage area are related to the AP coverage parameters and a set of design curves are developed which determines the coverage diameter required per AP at a specific sensor data rate and uplink capacity for the whole AP covered area. The sensors are assumed of two kinds which are low-speed sensors for monitoring slowly varying physical quantities and high-speed sensors such as those used in video monitoring.

Keywords: Aerial platforms, wireless sensor network, traffic monitoring, surveillance systems.
