Performance Evaluation of TCP and UDP Protocols in VANET Scenarios Using NCTUns-6.0 Simulation Tool
The paper presents an insight into the VANETs (Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks) technology. The main objective of this study is to investigate the performance of transport layer protocols in different VANET environments. AODV routing protocol is used at network layer for routing message packets between vehicles. To conduct this study two traditionally used transport layer protocols, namely, TCP and UDP, have been selected for making performance evaluations on basis of three performance metrics, namely, throughput, number of packet drop and number of collision packets.
