In this paper we evaluate V-AODV a version of AODV (Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector) especially created for Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETs). V-AODV is designed to run with a complex cross layered metric based on both delay from node to node and Bit Error Rate (BER) coming from the physical layer. We conducted simulations with the NS2 simulator taking in account a realistic environment tool called Communication Ray Tracer (CRT). Our results show that the basic propagation models usually in use with NS2 are not suitable for VANETs simulations. We also show that when using a routing metric based on delay and BER, the first parameter is more relevant in terms of QoS than the second one.
