Gas pipelines are exposed to the danger especially in bridges, roads and subway construction areas. It can cause leakage accidents from the stress and vibration changes and it can threaten human’s life. To avoid that, the gas pipelines should be monitored continuously. The system of stress estimation using MEMS (Micro electro mechanical system_ wireless tilt sensor has been developed and has been evaluated by a lob test bench.
