Abstract

The quality and the quantity of liquid fluid flow in pipelines is a crucial issue for human beings' daily life, especially for leak detection. The control and managing of pipelines have been assuming a major importance for all kinds of fluids to be conveyed through. When the fluid is like oil, hazardous fluid and/or water for human beings' necessity, the monitoring of pipelines becomes extremely fundamental. For complex pipeline networks, even if flowmeters deliver data about fluid quantities, they cannot be used for each part of a complex and extended network because of heavy increasing costs. The research proposes the use of video surveillance in terms of video validation of a magnetic flowmeter in order to measure the amount of fluid by using only video camera located on an analog flowmeter. A specific algorithm has been developed to process liquid frames
