Abstract : This paper is devoted to the boundary control design for traffic evolving on large-scale urban networks. The state corresponds to the vehicle density that evolves on a continuum two-dimensional plane. This plane represents an urban network, whose parameters are interpolated as a function of distance to the physical roads. The dynamics of the vehicle density are governed by a newly developed multi-direction traffic flow model called the NSWE-model that encompasses a system of four coupled partial differential equations (PDEs). Each of these PDEs describes the density evolution in one of the four cardinal directions: North, South, West and East. For this model we design a control applied at the network's upstream boundary to drive a multi-directional congested traffic state to a desired equilibrium state. We analyse the class of desired states the system can be driven to. Finally, the result is validated numerically using the real network of Grenoble downtown.
