In this paper, the authors introduce an integrated framework which combines the artificial neural networks approach with a continuum type model of traffic flow in order to simulate effectively vehicular traffic flow dynamics in road networks. Such framework aims to improve the predictive performance of traditional models of traffic flow, thus providing a support for a more effective traffic management so as to enhance the operational efficiency and capacity of transportation systems. The key advantage of the proposed framework, compared to classical models in the literature, is its ability not only to reproduce traffic dynamics along road sections but also to take into account the complex patterns of traffic flow around intersections.
