In vehicular ad hoc networks there is the ability to communicate between vehicles. This Communication which is wireless should be rapid and reliable. These networks have unique characteristic. This communication among vehicles has many advantages in safety and comfort applications. Since, the roads are always encountered to accidents and risks, using optimized tools could be useful in these situations. In this study, AODV and ADV routing algorithms has been compared through their performance metrics in a city scenario, include delay, network loss, collision and throughput were investigated through NCTUns 6.0.
