Abstract: In this paper a possibility of detection of asteroidal meteoroid streams is discussed. The relation between the geocentric velocity of meteoroids and observed hourly rates of meteors is studied provided that (a) the meteor luminosity and velocity are related as I eaquals approximately v^5, (b) the structure of a meteoroid stream is similar to the Geminid meteoroid stream. From this viewpoint the most promissing candidates for associations between AAA asteroids and meteoroid streams should be 5496 1973 NA, 2102 Tantalus and 1996 BT.
