The concept of barrier coverage has been utilized for with various applications of surveillance, object tracking in smart cities. In barrier coverage, it is desirable to have large number of active barriers to maximize lifetime of UAV-assisted application. Because existing studies primarily focused on the formation of barriers in two-dimensional area with limited applicability, it is indispensable to extend the barrier constructions in three-dimensional area. In this letter, a cube transition barrier system using smart UAVs is designed for three-dimensional space. Then, we formally define a problem whose goal is to maximize the number of cube transition barriers by applying a two-dimensional theory to a three-dimensional spaces. To solve this problem, we propose two algorithms to return the number of barriers and evaluate their performances based on numerical simulation results.
