In recent years, continuous progress in wireless communication has opened a new research field in computer networks. Now a day's wireless ad-hoc networking is an emerging research technology that needs attention of the industry people and the academicians. A vehicular ad-hoc network uses vehicles as mobile nodes to create mobility in a network. Simulation is the reproduction of the method of real-world practices. The computer simulation runs on a single or a network of computers to model and reproduce the behaviour of a system. This is based upon the conceptual model to simulate the system. In this research paper, we will discuss the coupling simulator VanetMobiSim and NS2 for vehicular ad-hoc networks. This output will be useful in implementing efficient tools on the realistic highway scenario, especially for four-wheeler traffic types in VANETs.
