Abstract
This paper describes integrated monitoring and control system being prepared for the "Pi of the Sky" experiment. The "Pi of the Sky" experiment looking for rapidly changing optical objects such as Gamma Ray Bursts (GRB) will consist of two sites, each one built of 12 CCD cameras installed on 3 parallactic mounts, equipped in many dedicated electronic and software systems and operated by a cluster of PC computers. All system components, both hardware and software, will operate in remote location as a robot and will have to be equipped in a monitoring and control system that allows to trace all parameters of the system and enable to find and recover from all problems quickly either by automatic procedures or by remote operator. Architecture and implementation of such system based on established hardware and software tools is presented in this paper.
