Performance of D-LAR on the basis of Average Hop Count in VANET


  • Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, Lovely Professional University, Jalandhar - 144411, Punjab, India


VANET (Vehicular Ad Hoc Network) can perform vast number of applications like active safety, create warning messages by wireless vehicular communications without using fixed infra-structure. Due to VANET characteristics such as dynamic nature, repeated fragmentation and continuously changes in network topologies, performance of routing algorithms can be a challenging task. Thus, greedy based approach provides the most suitable solutions for routing in VANET. In this paper, D-LAR (Directional Location Aided) protocol performance is discussed which will give us more accurate location of moving vehicles as compared to the other location aided protocols on the basis of average hop count.
