Over the last few decades, the researchers have been fascinated towards vehicular networks. Vehicular ad-hoc network (VANET) is a highly dynamic wheeled network where the on road vehicles and road – side units considered as nodes to allow the wireless communication. Each node acts as the host in VANETs. Due to high dynamic nature of VANETs the mobility pattern and the networktopologies change frequently, that make it differ from the other type of ad-hoc network The challenge of this research is a crucial designing for dynamic routing protocol in VANETs.
This paper proposes a cluster-based approach for dynamic routing in VANETs. This new routing approach have an aim of increasing the overall network throughput, delivery ratio with less normalized routing load in comparison of AODV Extensive simulations are carried out in NS2 to appraise the efficiency of the proposed cluster-based routing approach.
