The deployment strategy of wireless applications in metropolitan areas is essential for their efficiency and functionality. In this paper, we introduce and study a deployment strategy for wireless on-street parking sensor networks. We define a multiple-objective problem in our analysis, and solve it with two real-world street parking maps. We present the results on the tradeoff among minimum energy consumption, sensing information delay and the amount of deployed mesh routers and Internet
