Pipeline systems are essential for the well-being and security of the people, the vitality of the economy, and the prosperity of society. Damage to pipelines can lead to potentially disastrous humanitarian, social, economic, and ecological consequences. Therefore, the assessment and monitoring of pipeline conditions are essential. An overview of sensing solutions for that purpose is presented. First, the most common types of pipeline and related damage are introduced. Then, current and emerging sensing solutions are presented, with accent on the applicability of each solution and its suitability to detect defects. The advantages and weaknesses are summarized, and a few illustrative examples briefly presented.
