Abstract--We consider a Ferry based Wireless Local
Area Network (FWLAN), in which information is for-
warded from a base station to sensors, or gathered from
sensors to a base station using a moving Ferry. The sensors
are scattered in a large area and do not have direct
radio connectivity with the base station. The ferry thus
serves as a relay that enables communication between
the sensors and the base station. Our goal in this paper
is to design optimal routes of the Ferry moving along
which it distributes/collects the messages. Our analysis and
optimization results build heavily on the theory of polling
systems which we extend here in order to handle the case
of continuous location of the demand. We derive optimal
