Traffic congestion is always a major issue in urban planning, especially when the vehicles in the roadway keep growing and the local authorities are lack of solutions to manage or distribute the traffics in the city. Although there are several factors that may cause traffic congestion, inefficiency in traffic management is always the main issue. Additionally, the most traditional methods of resolving traffic congestion or rerouting algorithm are mainly designed for individuals' benefits, by

However, with the development of technologies in Internet of Things (IoT), vehicle to vehicle (V2V) or Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) communications, group based routing becomes achievable. Instead of optimizing the routing path for individual drivers, this paper studies how to develop a new method to provide new routing method based on vehicles' similarities in a specific urban's transportation environment.
