## Abstract

While the Euclidean distance characteristics of the Poisson line Cox process (PLCP) have been investigated in the literature, the analytical characterization of the path distances is still an open problem. In this paper, we solve this problem for the stationary Manhattan Poisson line Cox process (MPLCP), which is a variant of the PLCP. Specifically, we derive the exact cumulative distribution function (CDF) for the length of the shortest path to the nearest point of the MPLCP in the sense of path distance measured from two reference points:

(i) the typical intersection of the Manhattan Poisson line process (MPLP), and

(ii) the typical point of the MPLCP. We also discuss the application of these results in infrastructure planning, wireless communication, and transportation networks.
