Wireless vehicular communications are attracting more and more interests for applied research in industries. Most of the efforts are spent in deploying Vehicular Mobile Ad-Hoc NETworks (VANETs) for applications such as active safety and Internet services. This paper addresses routing problem in VANETs for applications related to comfort and infotainment for users where an unicast routing protocol optimization for fast topology changes is needed. In previous research work, the authors have proposed a new movement prediction-based routing concept for VANETs called MOPR which they have already applied to the reactive routing protocol AODV in order to improve its performances by exploiting vehicles movements patterns.
