The present work is dedicated to improvement of the energetic efficiency of the mobile robot performing its task of cross-terrain inspections. It was improved by optimization of charge/discharge dynamics in a pair "solar panel-battery". The irradiance intensity was enhanced by additional system design improvement, in order to extend the time of mission performance. The validity of proposed approach was proved in a computational experiment.
