Abstract: Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs) are known as a special type of Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs) specialized in vehicular communications. These networks are based on smart vehicles and base-stations, which share data by means of wireless communications. To route these information, a routing protocol is required. Since the VANETs have a particular network features as rapidly changeable topology, designing an efficient routing scheme is a very hard task. In this paper, we mainly focus on surveying new routing protocols dedicated to VANETs. We present unicast, multicast and broadcast protocols. The experimental results are discussed to evaluate the performance of the presented methods.


Keywords: Vehicular Ad-hoc networks, Routing, Unicasting, Multicasting, Broadcasting
