Abstract: Sensor nodes (SNs) are small sized, low cost devices used to facilitate automation, remote controlling and monitoring. Wireless sensor network (WSN) is an environment monitoring network formed by the number of SNs connected by a wireless medium. Deployment of SNs is an essential phase in the life of a WSN as all the other performance matrices such as connectivity, life and coverage directly depends on it. Moreover, the task of deployment becomes challenging when the WSN is to be established in a large scale candidate region within a limited time interval in order to deal with emergency conditions. In this paper a model for time efficient and precise placement of SNs in large-scale candidate region has been proposed. It constitute of two sets of pneumatic launchers (PLs), one on either side of a deployment helicopter. Each PL is governed by software which determines the launch time and velocity of a SN for its precise placement on the predetermined positions. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme is more time efficient, feasible and cost effective in comparison to the existing state of art models of deployment and can be opted as an effective alternative to deal with emergency conditions.
