Performance Analysis of Location and Distance Based Routing Protocols in VANET with IEEE802.11p

Conference paper
Part of the Smart Innovation, Systems and Technologies book series (SIST, volume 44)


A new sub-category of MANET is vehicular ad hoc network where vehicles communicate with each other. Because of constraint roads and very high speed of vehicles, routing is an issue in VANET. Most of the papers analyzed the performance of topology based routing protocols. This paper analyzed the performance of distance-effect routing algorithm for mobility (DREAM) and location aided routing (LAR) protocols for city and highway environment. Packet delivery ratio, throughput and delay metrics are considered for analysis of DREAM and LAR routing protocols using intelligent driver model (IDM) based VanetMobiSim and ns2 with IEEE802.11p.
