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