The clustering in Ad-hoc networks, which has interested a large community of scientists, is one of solutions used to ensure the stability of the network and to reduce packets loss. The challenge is to find the best metric to generate fewer clusters. In this paper, we compare between four metrics used in Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANet) for choose the cluster-heads, namely Unique ID, Degree (Connectivity), Distance and Mobility. The intent of this study is to deduce the best metric suited to the characteristics of VANet such as high velocity and organized mobility.
