Vehicle-to-vehicle networks have gained significant interest in recent times from researchers all around the world. V2V/V2I are emerging as an efficient solution for achieving road safety and securely transmitting data from one vehicle to other. However, in such opportunistic environments such as a sparse vehicular network where disruption, dynamic network topology, fast vehicle movement, and environmental conditions are the major concerns, data forwarding is extremely challenging. Traditional ad-hoc routing protocols like Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) and Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) fail to deliver in such laborious conditions. Routing protocols of Delay/Disruption Tolerant Networks(DTN) exploit the Store-Carry-Forward Mechanism (SCF) strategy in these cases. Taking advantage of temporary connections to disseminate information is the focus of DTN. DTN helps to increase information propagation coverage in sparse areas where there are very few devices. In this paper, we first compare the performance of AllJoyn framework and Direct Delivery protocol in a single-hop scenario and then draw the attention towards a multi-hop scenario by comparing other three routing protocols that use DTN as the underlying paradigm. These protocols are Flooding, Epidemic, and PRoPHET. The performances are evaluated by transmitting the files of size 1, 4, and 10 MB from a static sender to a mobile receiver in the multi-hop scenario. We also develop an Android application that contains the implementation of these routing protocols along with file sharing functionality. From the outcomes of this experiment, it can be said that Epidemic routing protocol performs the best in our considered multi-hop scenario in terms of transfer delay, coverage, and throughput whereas, Direct Delivery routing protocol performs better than AllJoyn in single-hop communication.
