Vehicular Adhoc Networks (VANETs) are the subset of Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETS). Mobile Adhoc network is a decentralized and infrastructure less network. The topology changes rapidly. So routing is considered to be a major factor and Routing protocols play a vital role by sending and receiving packets from source node to the destination nodes. In this paper our focus is to study Reactive (Adhoc On Demand Distance Vector) and Proactive (Destination Sequence Distance Vector) protocols based on random waypoint mobility model. Performance of two types of routing protocols (AODV and DSDV) based on packet dropped, sent and received at all nodes, throughput and Jitter are evaluated.
