Background. To implement the process of collecting UAV monitoring data from sensor nodes in the wireless sensor networks (WSN) control system, it is necessary to implement appropriate methods and algorithms. To increase the efficiency of the data collection process in the WSN, it is clustered, the main cluster nodes are selected that collect monitoring data in the cluster and transmit this data to the UAV when it approaches. The methods proposed today for collecting data from nodes of sensor networks using UAVs do not consider the requirements of various target control functions, especially the functioning of
specific networks and require further improvement.
Objective. The aim of the work is to analyze and consider ways to improve the efficiency of the process of collecting data from sensor nodes of the WSN using UAVs during its clustering.
Methods. In contrast to the traditional ways to solve the problem of collecting UAV monitoring data from WSN nodes, a set of methods is proposed to achieve various objective control functions (maximizing WSN functioning time, minimizing data collection time, minimizing the number of UAVs) at various stages of network operation.
Results. The application of the proposed methods to increase the efficiency of monitoring data collection allows increasing the network lifetime, reducing data collection time and reducing the number of UAVs required for data collection.
Conclusions. To achieve various target management functions at the main stages of monitoring data collection in wireless sensor networks, many methods have been proposed to improve the basic indicators of their functioning.
