VANET is a type of Mobile Ad-hoc network (MANET) that provides wireless communication between close by moving vehicles as well as between vehicles and road side fixed equipment. It requires the vehicles to be equipped with sensors and wireless devices and fixed roadside wireless infrastructure. There are number of research issues like Highly Dynamic Topology, Signal fading, Limited Bandwidth, Intermittent Connectivity, Mobility Modelling, Propagation Model, Routing which needs attention. The scope of this chapter is focused on various advances in Greedy Forwarding routing techniques. Various VANET routing protocols are reviewed and compared in this chapter.
