Abstract

A Vehicular Ad hoc Network (VANET) is a distinctive situation of wireless ad hoc networks. The designing of the routing protocol considers a critical role in communication in VANET. VANET has specific features compared to other types of wireless ad hoc networks that impose special characteristics for designing of efficient routing protocols.The challenging factor in designing efficient routing protocols for VANET is the high movement of vehicles that incurs a rapid change in the network topology that causes frequent link breakage. This paper presents and evaluates different position-based routing protocols associated with VANETs. The evaluation aiming to determine appropriate specifications for optimal routing protocols’ features achieving best performance within different environmental conditions. The performance comparison is carried out in terms of Packet Delivery Rate (PDR), Void Problem Occurrence Rate (VPOR), and Average Hops Count (AHC).
