In this study, we have evaluated the performance vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) with real vehicular traces. The vehicular movements are generated with IDM_IM mobility model. This mobility model used to emulate the movement pattern of nodes, i.e., vehicles on streets defined by maps. Our objective is to provide a comparative performance analysis among various ad hoc routing protocols, i.e., LAR1, AODV, and DSR protocols. The simulation work has been conducted using the Glomosim 2.03 simulator. The results show that LAR1 protocol achieves maximum packet delivery ratio is 100 % in the sparsely populated network. The results show that LAR1 outperforms DSR and AODV in terms of packet delivery ratio.
