Abstract: Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET) is a sub class of Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANET). VANET provides wireless communication among vehicles and vehicle to road side equipments. The communication between vehicles is used for comfort, safety and for entertainment as well. The performance of communication depends on how better the routing takes place in the network. There are many routing protocols that have been proposed and assessed to improve the efficiency of VANET. In this paper, simulation of AODV routing protocol is done on simulators SUMO, MOVE and NS2. MOVE tool is an open source micro-traffic simulator which used along with SUMO to generate real world mobility models for VANET. Based on the simulation results performance of AODV is analyzed with respect to various parameters like Throughput, Packet drops etc. and graphs were plotted using MATLAB for evaluation.
