Abstract: Vehicular Adhoc Network (VANET) is a kind of advanced MANET specially designed for vehicular communication. Routing in dynamic environment is difficult therefore Multi agent based cooperative routing in dynamic vehicular technology is proposed. The objective of this work is to determine effective routing by utilizing the information provided by the intelligent multi agent systems. A Co-operative Cluster based Multi-Agent Approach (CCMAA) for intelligent routing protocol is proposed for better results since implementing traffic forecasting and efficient routing in dynamically changing environment is a challenging task. The multi agent system includes mobile agent, static agent, service agent and this agent are used for optimal communication and reduces network traffic. The performance evaluation is done using the simulation tool Network Simulator (NS2) tool. Packet delivery rate, delay and throughput are the performance metrics used to evaluate the proposed protocol.
