Performance Evaluation of Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET) Using Clustering Approach
Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETS) have actually attracted a lot of attention over the last few years as being used to improve road safety. In this paper, cluster based technique has been introduced in VANET. As VANET is a new form of MANET, so with this cluster based technique in VANET, several handoff problems have been removed, which were actually difficult to remove in MANET. For this traffic infrastructure cluster based routing has been used, with two routing protocols i.e. AODV and AODV+. The network simulator NS2 has been used for removing unpredictable movements that may arise in the network.
