Abstract: The increasing use of automation in urban environments has led to the deployment of robots for road traffic regulation and control, resulting in the assistance or replacement of road traffic police officers by robots. In the Democratic Republic of Congo DRC, the BINTI rolling robot, a locally developed invention, is employed for this purpose, with support from LWOMEN technologies, an association of women engineers in the DRC. Previous studies by O. BEYA, E. KAUMBA, T. KASEBA KASEBA, and G. KAMENA NKASA focused on the automation of the BINTI robots hardware, leaving the software aspect unaddressed. This study distinguishes itself by aiming to design the API program to control the BINTI rolling robot, starting from the grafcet specifications and implementing it on the S7-300 API using TIA PORTAL. The simulation of the program will be conducted using the PLCSLIM, Siemens automaton simulator.
