Vehicular Computation Offloading for Industrial Mobile Edge Computing
  Due to the limited local computation resource, industrial vehicular computation requires offloading the computation tasks with time-delay sensitive and complex demands to other intelligent devices (IDs) once the data is sensed and collected collaboratively. This paper considers offloading partial computation tasks of the industrial vehicles (IVs) to multiple available IDs of the industrial mobile edge computing (MEC), including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and the fixed-position MEC servers, to optimize the system cost including execution time, energy consumption, and the ID rental price. Moreover, to increase the access probability of IV by the UAVs, the geographical area is divided into small partitions and schedule the UAVs regarding the regional IV density dynamically. A minimum incremental task allocation (MITA) algorithm is proposed to divide the whole task and assign the divided units for the minimum cost increment each time. Experimental results show the proposed solution can significantly reduce the system cost.
