With fixed road infrastructure and more vehicles on traffic routes lead to traffic congestion conditions especially in urban areas of developing nations. Traffic jams are normal in major cities which ultimately cause delay in travel time, more fuel consumption and more pollution. This manuscript propose a Multi-metric road guidance mechanism (MRGM) which considers multiple metrics to analyze the traffic congestion conditions and based on the conditions effective optimal routes are suggested to the vehicles. The Simulation of the proposed mechanism is performed with the SUMO by using the python script and the results show that proposed mechanism i.e. MRGM outperforms other mechanism in terms of traffic efficiency, travel time, fuel consumption and pollution levels in the smart vehicular network.
