Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) have been attracting more and more attention. However, due to the fast movement of vehicles and dynamic topology change, designing an efficient routing protocol in the complex urban environment is quite challenging. In this paper, an Intersection-based Geographic Routing with Transmission Quality guaranteed in Urban VANETs (IGRTQ) is proposed. As a selection guidance of the best route, each road segment is assigned with a weight based on the collected information related to the delay and connectivity of each road segment. Based on the weight information, the road segment can be dynamically selected one by one to form the optimized routing path, avoiding the local maximum and data congestion. An improved greedy strategy is further proposed to forward the packet along the selected road segment, ensuring the fast and reliable packet transmission. Simulation results show that the proposed protocol provides higher packet delivery ratio and lower end-to-end delay compared to the existing protocols.
