The article substantiates the necessity to address the effects of fog and rain when designing mobile robotic platforms and to define the fog numerical indicators and conditions of its occurrence. The common braking system structure and the working principle of brake disk drying through periodic rubbing of brake pads and disks are brought. The electrical diagram of brake control system with microcontroller and the fog and rain sensors and reliability analysis of this device are given. In a proposed control device operation algorithm the conditions of fog occurrence and the sensor parameters are considered. The algorithm is required to create a software system for mobile robotic platform.
