Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANETs) are a compelling application of ad hoc networks, because of thepotential to access specific context information (e.g. traffic conditions, service updates, route planning)and deliver multimedia services (VOIP, in-car entertainment, instant messaging, etc.). In this paper, wepropose an agent based intelligent information dissemination model for VANETs. Safety information likecooperative driving, accident, road condition warnings, etc. play a major role for applications of VANET.Safety information dissemination poses a major challenge of delay-sensitive nature. This paper proposesan agent based model for intelligent information dissemination in VANETs. Proposed model usescognitive agent concept for realizing intelligent information dissemination. To test the efficiency of themodel, proposed scheme is simulated using NS-2 simulator. Some of the performance parametersanalyzed are bandwidth utilized, push latency and push/pull decision latency.
