VANETs (Vehicular Ad hoc Networks) are highly mobile wireless ad hoc networks and will play an important role in public safety communications and commercial applications. Routing of data in VANETs is a challenging task due to rapidly changing topology and high speed mobility of vehicles. Conventional routing protocols in MANETs (Mobile Ad hoc Networks) are unable to fully address the unique characteristics in vehicular networks. In this paper, the authors propose a potential EBGR (Edge Node Based Greedy Routing), a greedy position based routing approach to forward packets to the node present in the edge of the transmission range of source/forwarding node.
