Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANET) is a promising network technology in which cars are used as mobile nodes to establish a communication network. VANET can be deployed in an urban area as well as on highways. In VANET, a significant role is played by the routing protocols to enhance the performance. In this paper, the issue of mobility prediction and link stability in VANET is addressed. Performance of Greedy Perimeter Stateless Routing protocol (GPSR) and proposed Modified Greedy Perimeter Stateless Routing protocol (MGPSR) over parameter matrix using different speeds are observed and analysed. Further Multicast Ad-hoc On-Demand Distance Vector routing protocol (MAODV) is used to reduce link failures. The performance metric parameters Packet Loss Ratio, Delay, Packet Delivery Ratio, Link Expiration Time and Latency are used to evaluate the performance with respect to speed. The objective of this work is to identify the best-suited neighbour node using mobility prediction and select the most stable link to improve the overall performance. Based on the verified findings, the routing performance is improved in terms of predicting mobility of neighbour node and connectivity is enhanced with reduced link breakages by using a combination of MGPSR and MAODV.
