Performance Evaluation of MANET Based Routing Protocols for VANETs in Urban Scenarios

Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs) are self-organizing ad hoc networks that are specifically designed for communication among vehicles where vehicles are themselves the nodes. Although routing protocols have already been analyzed and compared in the past for Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs), simulations and comparisons of routing protocols for VANETs have almost always been done considering random motions with non-urban specific parameters. This paper studies the performance of Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) and Destination Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV) which are popular routing protocols in MANETS for routing among vehicular nodes in VANETs.
