Performance Analysis of Various VANET Routing Protocols

G. Anitha, K. Roseline Mary Clare Mary Clare


Vehicular Ad hoc Network (VANET) is a wireless network that is formed in the fly between a collection of cars connected by wireless links. One of the most notorious problem in VANET to ensure that established routing paths do not break before the end of data transmission. Routing algorithm is an important research field for Vehicular Ad Hoc Network. This paper discusses the merits and demerits of the routing protocols. Finally it concludes by comparing the various routing protocols such as AODV, DSR, DSDV.
