MANET is infrastructure less network consisting of wireless nodes acting either as a host or a routing node. A number of simulation studies have been carried out to evaluate the performance of MANET routing protocols. In typical simulations, nodes move at speeds between the broad range of 1 – 30 m/s, whereas in a real life setting, the movement speed of nodes at a particular venue may be confined to a narrower range depending on the nature of the venue. This paper analyzes the performance of routing protocols, on the basis of four venue based mobility models. These models are Fast Car Model (FCM), Slow Car Model (SCM), Human Run Model (HRM) and Human Walk Model (HWM). Four routing protocols namely AODV, DSDV, DSR and TORA are compared in this paper. The simulation results show that DSDV has low end-to-end delay, whereas TORA has high overhead as speed is increased.
