A process and system for fluid distribution from a principal intelligence and fluid distribution center to multiple users through a plurality of distributed intelligence sub-centers. Each distributed intelligence sub-center has intelligence computing, analyzing, decision making, and direction capability to provide control for its portion of the system. The process and apparatus of this invention provides flow control, leak detection, pipe condition assessment, user meter readings, pipeline locator signals, robot control, and pipeline repair and cleaning....


An underground pipeline fluid distribution system to multiple users comprising: a principal intelligence and distribution center; a plurality of distributed intelligence sub-centers, each said distributed intelligence sub-center controlling a set of user meters corresponding to each said distributed intelligence sub-center by computing and analyzing data to, determine a given output corresponding to a sensed input; an underground pipeline system in fluid communication through a supply pipeline with said principal distribution center and said plurality of...
