This paper presents the URBAN XOR protocol, an XOR-based flat routing mechanism developed for Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs) formed in urban scenarios. The paper firstly describes the URBAN XOR routing principle, which requires reduced knowledge about the set of nodes present in the VANET in order to provide traffic forwarding. Basically, the URBAN XOR protocol introduces the concept of local visibility, prioritizing the insertion of closer neighbors (in number of hops) in the routing tables, and simplifying the management of the frequent network mobility found in VANETs.
