One of the recent developing technologies of our time is the Vehicle Ad Hoc Network popularly known as VANET which integrates ad hoc wireless network and Cellular technology for achieving intelligent inter-vehicular communication. This is projected towards improving driver and passenger's comfort, safety and road traffic efficiency. Inter-vehicular communication is made possible by passing a message from one vehicle to another through using a reliable routing protocol. The usage of efficient and reliable routing protocol has created many research areas for Researchers and has helped to ensure end-to-end packet delivery in recent times, regardless of the incessant changing network topology of Vehicle Ad Hoc Network. In this research, Ad hoc On Demand Distance Vector Routing Protocol (AODV) was evaluated against some network performance metrics, such as Packet data loss, Packet delay and throughput using CityMob traffic generator, which is one of the most popular vehicular traffic mobility generators, for generating mobility for the communicating vehicular nodes. We created some communicating vehicular nodes and tested them in different traffic mobility scenarios using AODV routing protocol as our case study. The results we got were far from being verbose as we simulated close to real life traffic mobility and showed that AODV routing protocol thrives better in Simple and Highway traffic mobility model as compared to Improved Manhattan traffic mobility model.
