ABSTRACT
Vehicular Ad Hoc Network is currently challenge for the wireless networking and its researchers. In this paper we have proposed the survey of the different MAC Layer protocols of the wireless medium those can be implemented in the Vehicular Ad Hoc Networking. The survey is based upon the study of the different protocol on their MAC level and its performance factors is evaluated. The performance factor is extracted from the studied materials and current working conditions of the protocols. These all factors are mobility, accuracy, privacy and confidentiality, safety critical message priority, delay control and suitability on vehicle and roadside. According to analyzed performance factor the IEEE 802.11p Wave is most suitable protocol for the Vehicular Ad Hoc Network but it does not cover up all conditional requirements.
