Stripe-based wireless sensor networks can be deployed in many scenarios, such as roads, bridges, tunnels and metros. The deployment of this type of networks must be considered in detailed because the network is characterized by the long distance and narrow width. The paper gives an analysis of balanced energy consumption deployment of this network. The discussion is presented according to two type of width of network. The main factors which affect the network lifetime are analyzed in detailed and the simulation is presented. The simulation result shows that the short width of networks has little effect on network lifetime. Also, the maximum network lifetime can not be reached when the nodes have short communication radius. The network lifetime can be affected by the long width of networks. The network lifetime can be maximized when the nodes have long communication range.
