Abstract: Vehicular ad-hoc network (VANET) is high dynamic wheeled networks in which moving vehicles that can move in any direction at varying speed are behave as network nodes and router for data exchange. The frequently changes in topology and mobility pattern in VANET pose many unique networking research challenges which make crucial the designing of an new suit of efficient routing protocol for VANET. Recently, several approaches proposed by some authors in order to overcome the problem of discovering and maintaining the efficient and effective route for the data transmission over the wireless network but still there is scope of modernization. In this paper we are presenting cluster based routing approach for VANET and compare their performances with existing routing protocols. This new routing approach will have an aim of increasing the overall network throughput and minimize end to end delay. This paper, considering the mobility models like: random way point mobility model and group mobility model. Simulation studies are conducted using NS2.
