This paper presents a comparative test of two protocols namely-AODV and ADV in various mobility scenarios of Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETs). In order to make comparison three performance criterions are selected which include number of packet drop, throughput and total time taken by NCTUns-6.0 to simulate the given network. To carry out the simulation process an open source simulator tool is used for this study namely-NCTUns-6.0. Based on the simulation results of both aforementioned protocols, the performance comparison is made and appropriate protocol is selected for individual scenarios. The mobility scenarios selected are broadly categorized as highway and city scenarios with different mobility patterns.
