Geocasting is a special variant of multicasting, where data packet or message is transmitted to a predefined geographical location i.e., known as geocast region. The applications of geocasting in VANET are to disseminate information like, collision warning, advertising, alerts message, etc. In this paper, the authors have proposed a model for highway scenario where the highway is divided into number of cells. The intersection area between two successive cells is computed to find the number of common nodes.
