Abstract: In modern world, the numbers of vehicles are increasing unpredictably and as a result accidents, traffic violations; vehicle theft etc also increased a lot. Tracking exact location of each vehicle (node) may be useful in solving many such problems. From urban to rural the density of traffic, width of the road, network coverage etc may change; this makes localization of vehicle a challenging task. The construction of transport infrastructure does not provide an amicable solution to these problems and sometimes it even makes such problems more severe. This paper focuses on the survey of location detection for each vehicle as well as for the pedestrians along with various routing strategies in a VANET.
