A traffic-aware routing in VANET is a prime step in transmitting the long data for applications. Researchers’ address that the traditionally used routing protocols employed in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks are not suitable for routing in VANET, as VANETs differ from MANETs in the mobility model and environment. The demand to develop a traffic-aware protocol in VANET initiated to propose a routing protocol, termed as Adaptive Autoregressive Whale Optimization algorithm (Adaptive-ARW). The main goal of the proposed algorithm is to select the optimal path for performing routing in VANETs, for which the traffic required to be predicted. For predicting the traffic in the road segment, Exponential Weighed Moving Average (EWMA) is employed that predicts the traffic based on the average vehicle speed and the average traffic density. The minimum values of average speed and vehicles average traffic density to the less traffic density. Using the predicted traffic, the routing paths are generated, and the optimal paths are selected using the proposed algorithm that exhibits adaptive property. The analysis of the proposed algorithm provides the End-to-End delay, distance, average traffic density, and throughput of 2.938, 2.08, 0.0095, and 0.1354, respectively.
