Abstract—Vehicular AdHoc networks (VANETs) allow connectivity in dispersed vehicle environments and other difficult access areas, where conventional network systems are not satisfactory. One of the most significant technical challenges faced in implementing VANET is designing an efficient routing protocol that can provide a reliable path between the source and destination of the information. This paper discusses a routing scheme that incorporates the control strategy for transmitting messages and Global Navigation Satellite System (GGNS) information to optimize network routing. This scheme uses geolocation information to select the best path to forward the messages. To simulate communication in real-life scenarios, we used the Simulation of Urban MObility (SUMO) and Network Simulator-version 3 (NS-3) platform to compare our proposed algorithm to the traditional routing protocols scenarios when the number of source-destination pairs varies. Our results show that the proposed NAV2V algorithm can decrease the packet loss rate, end-to-end delay, and enhance network efficiency.
