VANET is an emerging technology which has taken enormous attention for researcher in the past few years. But due to its high mobility and frequent disconnected characteristics, it's very tough for routing protocols to disseminate data for wireless communication. No single protocol for VANET is able to meet every traffic scenario. Therefore, design of routing protocol is important aspect for efficient data dissemination in any kind of ad-hoc networks. So, we need to analyze the performance of each routing protocols for better routing. This paper present the comprehensive study and performance analysis of AODV, DSR and GSR routing protocols in VANET for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-roadside communication.
