We describe the importance of artificial
intelligence to overcome the human resource deficit in
the field of road traffic regulation. Thanks to the
communication between man and machine, the rolling
robot has been able to provide an answer to the monster
traffic jams observed on the arteries of Kinshasa but also
to the fatal accidents deplored during off-peak hours on
several crossings of the roads of the capital.
The rolling robot or intelligent rolling robot is an
android robot regulating road traffic on several streets
of Kinshasa, developed by Thérèse IzayKirongozi1
the Congolese association of engineers Women's
technology. It is equipped and powered by a solar panel.
Since the invention of this android robot to regulate
traffic, it now rolls in Kinshasa, Lubumbashi, and
Goma. And soon maybe all over the continent... Each
android robot, packed with electronic components,
equipped with cameras and equipped with solar panels,
measures 2.50 m in height and weighs 250 kg.
Indeed, these robots have the mention: "Made In
Congo" to say manufacture locally. It has all the
faculties that a human can possess to guide the passage
of vehicles. It consists of an aluminum assembly to
protect the equipment from dust, a solar panel to supply
it with energy, integrated cameras to record traffic
violations and a set of elements that receive light
The intelligent rolling robot is not perfect, and it
proves some limitations of which it should be added new
Thanks to the semiotics of Communication, we
studied the interactions between man and machine and
the impact of this communication on road traffic. Using
the Mathematical Theory of Information, with the model
of Shannon and Weaver (1948) and that of Lasswell
(1948), we have demonstrated in this article the process
of this human-machine communication. We also
unpacked the limitations related to the lack of feedback
that make artificial intelligence an additional problem
instead of a solution considered.
