Vehicular ad hoc Network (VANET) is a collection of vehicles and associated roadside infrastructure which provide mobile wireless communication services. One of the significant use-cases is to transmit the images using VANET during emergencies like road accidents, traffic congestion, fire, or traffic hazards. Priority-based routing allows the network to route critical data on priority. This paper proposes a Priority-based Routing Framework for Image Transmission (PRoFIT) for VANETs. PRoFIT for VANETs delivers critical image features at high priority to the sink node for early processing. Simulations were carried out that use PRoFIT for VANETs during the mobility of vehicles in emergency scenarios. The detailed experiments show the impact of priority-based routing during the mobility of vehicles. Both grid topology and vehicular topology were simulated. Packet end-to-end delay and delivery ratios were analyzed. A comparison of results of critical image information delivery with PRoFIT and without PRoFIT shows the impact of using PRoFIT for VANETs.
