Vehicle congestion has been increasing in large cities, causing economic losses and increasing environmental pollution. Through vehicular networks, it is possible to suggest routes to vehicles, to relieve existing congestion, and to reduce travel time and fuel consumption. In this context, we propose D-Hop, a distributed vehicle routing protocol, which takes into account the state of the traffic to calculate less congested routes that can change dynamically. Also, the sending of messages is controlled as to not overload the communication channel. We evaluated D-Hop through simulations. Travel time was reduced up to 85%, and the sending of messages up to 67% and 95%.
