This paper mainly focuses on the research of the classification method of the mixed traffic flow in the intersection. It falls into three main parts, the research on the intersection mixed traffic flow characteristics, the classification with the method of fuzzy clustering, and the application of the classification in the actuated signal control system in order to choose optimal control strategy. The paper presents a new promising method to classify the mixed traffic flow in the intersection, which is practical and of great necessity. It adheres to the Chinese situation greatly, and could be implied in actual operation. We have took tests in two intersections of it in related research in our instituted. The results are satisfying. More tests will be carried on in the following years to improve this new conception to be more completed.
