Vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANETs) form when vehicles are equipped with devices capable of short-range wireless communication. Vehicular Ad hoc networks involve motion of nodes depending on the mobility model chosen. Three important considerations in simulation of VANETs are mobility models, network simulator and the routing protocols. Selection of appropriate mobility model for evaluating routing protocol leads to efficient simulation results. Performance of routing protocols in VANETs can be measured using four metrics; bandwidth, packet loss, throughput and scalability. This research work is based on the simulation based analysis of Vehicular Ad- hoc networks using NS-2 as the network simulator. Performance evaluation of the protocols is conducted on the basis of four defined metrics and as conclusion is made according to the simulation results.
