Node motion and complex radio environment make packet loss estimation in VANET difficult. However, packet loss estimation impacts routing protocol and transmission control algorithm of VANET, so it is an important issue. In this chapter, we measured packet error of VANET in real urban road, and analyzed the characteristics of packet error in VANET, described packet error by a packet-level Makov (PLM) model and used GMM (Gaussian Mixture Model) to present probability density of packet error, and then proposed two methods to estimate packet error, one is based on PLM model, and another is RPEE (real-time packet error estimation) which adopts GMM of probability density of packet error in VANET.
