Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs) being a sub class of MANET is a challenging field of wireless communication. It is a sensible way of using infrastructure fewer networks augmented with Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). It is an emerging trend now-a-days for vehicles to be equipped with an embedded on-board computing unit with communication capabilities to enhance the overall driving experience. Such a system enables vehicle to vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication and provides vehicles with up-to-date route and traffic information.
