The purpose of vehicular ad hoc networks is to improve the traffic conditions and mitigate the problems occurred during ply. Any wrong decision taken by the vehicle may lead to hazardous problems and may create various serious issues. Thus, they need to be handled very carefully. Here, we have used trust-based methodology to find location with the help of trustworthiness of the node. In our proposed trust-based scheme, firstly calculation of trustworthiness of each vehicle exists in the network. After using trustworthiness, the location information of a vehicle is calculated. The purpose of calculating trustworthy is that higher the value of trustworthy of a node, higher the chances of providing the most accurate response. We have implemented the scheme in Java. The result shows that proposed scheme solves problem in the previously existing scheme.
