Vehicular Ad hoc NETwork (VANET) is a form of Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANET). The field of VANETs started gaining attention in 1980s and has now been an active field of research and development. VANETs provide one with the infrastructure for developing new systems to enhance drivers' and passengers' safety and comfort. There are many routing protocols that have been proposed and assessed to improve the efficiency of VANET. Simulator tool has been preferred over outdoor experiment because it is simple, easy and cheap. In this paper, simulation of one of the routing protocols, i.e., AODV is done on simulators which allow users to generate real world mobility models for VANET simulations.
