Video Pipeline Monitoring Offers A Tool To Avoid Costly Losses

We’ve heard of CPM, or computational pipeline monitoring. Isn’t it time that we embrace the opportunities of VPM: video pipeline monitoring? For years, pipelines have relied on traditional equipment for monitoring; that is, basic instrumentation brought back to the control room via some networking method. Most control rooms contain a SCADA system that provides significantly enhanced control, analysis and operational integrity by using sensor-based data and feeding it in some form to human operators. The scope of supervisory control has expanded to include computational pipeline monitoring: the ability to detect leaks in the system, as well as help plan for predictive
