In this article there is detailed discussion on MANET’s & Broadcast problem and how it helps to solve the Broadcast storm problem in VANET’s. First about the Mobile ad hoc networks i.e. (MANETs) they are self-organizing mobile wireless networks that do not rely on a preexisting infrastructure to communicate. Nodes of such networks have limited transmission range, and packets may need to traverse multiple other nodes. Although straightforward, fl ooding is far from optimal and generates a high number of redundant messages, wasting valuable limited resources such as bandwidth and energy supplies to network; such a scenario has often been referred to as the broadcast storm problem [2], and has generated many challenging research issues.
