Abstract

For the reliable delivery of safety-related information to vehicles in the VANET, a reliable VANET routing protocol is required. In this paper, we propose a routing protocol that works based on the road vehicle density information for fast and reliable communications among vehicles within the city environment VANET. In the proposed mechanism, each vehicle computes the road vehicle density by using beacon messages and the road information. Based on the road vehicle density information, each vehicle establishes a reliable route for packet delivery. Through the NS-2 based simulations, we compare our proposed mechanism with GPSR and show that our mechanism outperforms GPSR in terms of packet delivery success rate.
