In the Modern era, the environmental issues have given significant impact to the human live. The air pollution indoor and outdoor environment sometimes dangerous to the human health and it needs to be justified. To fulfill this purpose, telemeasurement process and technique should be used. Therefore, in this research, the mobile robot with equipped by several air quality parameters sensors is developed. The robot is controlled using remote control and using wireless connection system. The air quality in target area will be monitored by using sensors which will capture data and send it to the Central Control (laptop) for analyzing. And then to be able monitor certain area investigation, the mobile robot is guided by using wireless camera. Result from this project can make user to monitor and navigate the target area by using mobile robot and this can make user know the situation on that area. PIC16F887A has been chosen in this project as the main device which is controlling all activities of the mobile robot. Data capture and robot movement has been done in wireless to make user easy to do the monitoring activities. From result, knowing that the error percentage of the data capture is small compare to the digital meter. So from that knowing this project is effective because it make user easy to do air pollution monitoring process also can prevent the gas poisoning cases from happen.
