Abstract: This paper focuses on distance-bounded routing, whose goal is to deliver messages to the destination using proper delivery strategy and by utilizing radio network in necessary condition so minimizing the cost of communication network. Most of the researches emphasize on minimizing the end-to-end delay without focusing on minimizing the usage of radio. The messages can be delivered to the destination by hybrid technique i.e. data mulling (data carried by the vehicle) and packet forwarding (data transmitted through radio network). In this paper we use Euclidian distance relationship to predict the distance between the vehicles. This Euclidian distance between two vehicles is compared with given threshold distance to predict the proper delivery strategy.
