Vehicular ad hoc networks are a new generation of wireless mobile networks playing an important role in communication and safety of vehicles. In VANETs, exchange of traffic and road accidents data improves road safety. Packet routing is a critical issue in VANETs. Due to constant changes of network topology and nodes high moving speed in VANETs, mobile ad hoc network routing is not effective. The purpose of this study is to investigate routing algorithms based on greedy approach and propose a weight-based greedy algorithm. The results revealed that the proposed algorithm required lower transmission time and fewer steps compared with existing algorithms.
