The mobile networking has attracted a great numbers of researchers and industries. The Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks is a key to Intelligent Transport System. The recent advances in all fields have led to the advancement in the field of Ad Hoc Networking too. This mobile networking has attracted a great numbers of researchers and industries. This field is getting a huge attention because it has become an active field for research and development which will provide us with safe transport system along with the comfort. The communication between nodes in the VANET can cause congestion due to high frequency beacon messages that are generated by vehicles in an area where density of vehicles is very high in order to inform the neighboring nodes about the current traffic status. Congestion can also take place due to inefficient use of bandwidth; high transmit power, high vehicle density, changing topology of vehicles in the VANET network. A number of congestion control schemes have been designed to make the system efficient and robust but there are a lot many problems that still exist in the Vehicular Ad hoc Systems. In this paper we have proposed a congestion control algorithm for VANET’S which shows a better performance than existing algorithms in terms of various parameters.
