The current communication requirements are moving quickly to mobile ad-hoc networks, mainly because of the decreasing cost of wireless networking technology and the increasing capacity to integrate into embedded devices technologies such as WiFi, ZigBee, Bluetooth, and WAVE. It is important to understand the limitation or the strength of each protocol and standard in order to make a better selection decision at the moment of implementing a specific scenario. This paper evaluates how routing protocols perform in mobile scenarios when the speed of nodes is relatively high. Our research shows that reactive routing protocols have a better packet delivery ratio (PDR) than proactive routing protocols. However, proactive routing protocols have a smaller end-to-end delay and hops count.
