English translation:synthesis pilot plant controller
Explanation:
synthèse = synthesis (chemical meaning)
pilote = pilot. This is probably the word that makes a problem here. Without context it could be interpreted as "driver" or "driving". This is not the case. A "pilote" is a smaller scale research production plant. The translation is simply "pilot" or better "pilot plant".

Automate : PLC, controller etc. Here from the context (industrial thesis) I would prefer to use controller rather than an abbreviation like PLC (Programmable Logic Controller)

programming of the (XX) pilot robot


Explanation:
XX = I am not sure what "synthèse" here means, i.e., whether you are referring to a study document (synthesis) or to the generation of a concept (by computer, for example).

programming of the composite pilot automaton


Explanation:
this is somewhat more literal but I think it works or perhaps you could use programming of the composite pilot robot. the reference below refers to a military peoject involving a composite robot pilot so maybe it could be of some help
