Abstract: The road traffic network in the urban interlaced zone is a collection of road sections and nodes. The difficulty in road traffic monitoring lies in the processing of traffic at the node locations. In this paper, the cell transmission model is used to monitor the extended geographical information of the urban interlaced zone. Using the cell transmission model, the channelisation and cell outflow capacity at the intersection are calculated. According to the timing of traffic signals in the interlaced zone, calculations are made on the road traffic volume and accurately monitoring the vehicle density. The simulation experiment results show that the model in this paper can accurately monitor the congestion information of the gradation road network and the uniform road network in the urban interlaced zone traffic network, and the monitoring results are close to the actual results, indicating that the research method in this paper has stronger applicability.

Keywords: cell transmission model; CTM; urban ecotone; graded road network; uniform road network.
