The objective of the work is to find the best combination of rate control algorithm with routing protocol and implement them to improve the performance of the Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET). In this paper the performance of rate control algorithm with different routing protocols is evaluated for the real-time scenario in vehicular networks. real time map and the traffic is generated using Simulation of Urban Mobility (SUMO). Control algorithms and routing protocols are taken into consideration and simulated using Network Simulator version 3(NS3 ). Goodput, Packet delivery ratio and routing overhead are parameters used for the analysis. The simulation results in low densities of vehicles show thatMinstrel rate control algorithm with DSDV routing protocol performs best, whereas in high densities of vehicles AARF algorithm with DSDV Routing protocol performs best in terms of average goodput when compared with other approaches.
