Paper Abstract

Effective search for gamma ray bursts optical counterparts and other fast astrophysical phenomena requires robotic telescopes. Such telescopes have to be able to realise programmed survey schedule and to react to various kind of alerts. Robotic telescope used in the prototype phase of the "Pi of the Sky" project is described. Design of the full size detector is briefly presented.
