In this paper, the authors explain about the Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETs). Because these systems often comprise several tens, hundreds or even thousands of vehicle nodes, a real world test is very costly and time consuming operation. Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETs) research is carried out using different mobility and network simulators like MOVE, SUMO, TraNS, NS2 version 2.34 etc., because it allows for fast and cheap evaluation of protocols and applications in a controllable and reproducible manner. Simulation study helps the user to use models in order to make a judgment on real-world problem viability.
