Vehicular adhoc networks (VANETs) are relegated as a subgroup of Mobile adhoc networks (MANETs), with the incorporation of its principles. In VANET the moving nodes are vehicles which are self-administrated, not bounded and are free to move and organize themselves in the network. VANET possess the potential of improving safety on roads by broadcasting information associated with the road conditions. This results in generation of the redundant information been disseminated by vehicles. Thus bandwidth issue becomes a major concern. In this paper, Location based data aggregation technique is been proposed for aggregating congestion related data from the road areas through which vehicles travelled. It also takes into account scheduling mechanism at the road side units (RSUs) for treating individual vehicles arriving in its range on the basis of first-cum-first order. The basic idea behind this work is to effectually disseminate the aggregation information related to congestion to RSUs as well as to the vehicles in the network. The Simulation results show that the proposed technique performs well with the network load evaluation parameters.
