In Vehicular Ad-hoc NETwork (VANET), vehicles are equipped with sensing, computing and wireless devices. So that, vehicles can talks to road-side infrastructure (Vehicle To Infrastructure-V2I) and other vehicles (Vehicle To Vehicle-V2V). This communication is done by using dissemination protocol. Data about any type of event can be disseminated in the network. For instance, parking slot, accident, emergency vehicle to give a way. The content-based dissemination approach is used to disseminate data about the event to related vehicles by computing the probability of each vehicle to meet the event that is also known as Encounter Probability (EP).
