Landslide monitoring system is important for early warning for landslide prevention. In this study, the monitoring system was developed for landslide prone slope in Vietnam. The system monitored landslide phenomena as like displacement of mass and hydraulic condition to clarify the specific landslide mechanism. It also has function of landslide prediction for early warning of the monitored landslide. Prediction based on displacement velocity is useful in this system. And it will be improved the landslide flume test in the future.
