Abstract: VANET is the subset of mobile ad-hoc network, with the help of this we can communicate among nearby vehicles and between vehicle and also fixed road side equipment. The aim of this study is to perform the feasibility analysis of Nakagami propagation model for vehicular ad-hoc networks in the Indian automotive network. The main purpose of this paper is to present a simulation-based study of distinct propagation model for vehicular ad-hoc networks and to find the efficient analysis using on-demand routing protocols that can be more suitable in various scenarios, particularly on highways. We have used different parameters like throughput and packet drop for comparing the AODV, DSR and TORA protocols in VANETs. The research outputs will be useful in implementing efficient architecture on the realistic highway scenario, especially for four-wheeler traffic types. It will be advantageous to avoid congestion and highway road accidents due to speeds of the traffic, and road condition.
