Interest in Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs) has grown over the last few years, particularly in the context of emerging Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs) are highly mobile wireless networks that are designed to support vehicular safety, traffic monitoring, and other commercial applications. However, efficient routing in VANETs remains challenging for many reasons, e.g., the varying vehicle density over time, the size of VANETs (hundreds or thousands of vehicles), and wireless channel fading due to high motion and natural obstructions in urban environments (e.g., buildings, trees, and other vehicles).
