Abstract: VANET is a type of ad hoc network in which moving cars are considered as the nodes. These nodes can communicate with each other and forms an Intelligent Transport System (ITS). This will be useful in a wide range of applications that include driver safety, entertainment related and improved navigation. A lot of research has been done in VANETs considering different problem areas that include routing protocols, architecture, security, protocols for physical layer and link layer, clock synchronization, vehicle mobility, etc. In this study, researchers give a detailed review on VANETs, its applications, its prospective research areas and the tools useful for research. This study will be very helpful for researchers working in this area and will be a complete guide survey, comparison and reference.
