This article introduces a prototype of the mobile device intended for monitoring industrial area. The mobile device is designed mainly for outdoor environment. Its main function is manual or automatic remote patrolling. The Paper presents control system and other functions like video recognition and localization sensors. Principles of trajectory navigation by means of GPS system. Monitoring of mobile device position and movements is possible by web interface or desktop solution.
