This letter presents design and implementation of a system solution, where light weight wireless devices are used to identify a moving object within underground pipeline for maintenance and inspection. The devices such as transceiver operating at S-band are deployed for underground settings. Finer-grained channel information in conjunction with leaky-wave cable (LWC) detects any moving entity. The processing of the measured data over time is analyzed and used for reporting the disturbances. Deploying an LWC as the receiver has benefits in terms of a wider coverage area, covering blind and semiblind zones. The system fully exploits the variances of both amplitude and phase information of channel information as the performance indicators for motion detection. The experimental results demonstrate greater level of accuracy.
