Abstract: This paper presents a reactive location routing algorithm that uses cluster-based flooding for Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANET). We compare both position-based and non-position-based routing strategies in typical urban and motorway traffic scenarios. A microscopic traffic model, developed in OPNET, is used to evaluate the performance of the Location Routing Algorithm with Cluster-Based Flooding (LORA_CBF), Ad-Hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) and Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) in terms of average Route Discovery (RD) time, End-to-End Delay (EED), Routing Load, Routing Overhead, Overhead, and Delivery Ratio.

Keywords: unicast routing; multi-hop wireless networks; inter-vehicular data exchange; ad-hoc networks; location routing algorithm; cluster-based flooding; VANET; vehicular ad-hoc networks; routing protocols.
