Background/Objectives: To analyze the performance and find the challenges of routing in VANET. Findings: VANET protocols should be designed in such a way that a link should be established between the nodules in a nexus for efficient communication. Routing protocols are developed usually based on the two types of communication (i.e.) Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) communication and Vehicle to Infrastructures (V2I) irrespective of their environment. This paper gives a survey of about the various routing protocols in VANETs, their main characteristics and their pros and cons which help for the further enrichment of the same. Applications/Improvements: The results observed from this work will motivate to improve the issues in VANET and to enhance the routing protocols.
