The natural gas pipelines daily inspection is an important work to protect pipelines security. The paper designs and develops the pipeline inspection system based on smart phone integrated with GPS, GPRS technology. First, this paper introduces GPS, GPRS and smart phone technology, and then designs the system architecture and function modules of the system, finally develops the system. The system can effectively complete the patrollers monitoring, pipeline and devices data collection, real-time exception handling, inspection data statistics and analysis. Practice proves the system accelerates the information process of pipeline inspection and makes the pipeline inspection management more standard and effective.
