An inter-integrated system for crude oil pipeline using Wireless Sensor Network is designed for an incessant monitoring and communication in the desert for a span of 1350 Km from pumping station to harbor stockpiling tanks with 135 distributed control system stations. The proposed wireless sensor network equipment is used to scan the sensor status installed in the pipeline and send the required information utilizing dedicated low bandwidth with Quality of Service level three secured Message Queuing Telemetry Transport. This system generates energy on its own by using the solar panel and stores it in battery banks. Low power controller with Wi-Fi developed by Texas Instruments has been utilized to design a working prototype.
