The paper proposes a model for real time control of urban traffic networks. A modular framework based on first order hybrid Petri nets models the vehicle flows by a first order fluid approximation. Moreover, the lane interruptions and the signal timing plan controlling the area are described by the discrete event dynamics using timed Petri nets. The proposed model is applied to a real intersection located in Bari, Italy. Simulation of different scenarios shows the technique efficiency: validation is performed by comparison with a previously proposed alternative approach employing colored Petri nets.
