Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) computation offloading has emerged as a promising solution to facilitate computing-intensive vehicular task processing, where task vehicles (i.e., TaVs) will be requested to offload computing-intensive tasks to server vehicles (i.e., SeVs) in order to keep task delay low. However, it is challenging for TaVs to obtain the optimal V2V computation offloading decisions (i.e., realizing the minimal task delay) due to the constraints, including: 1) incomplete offloading information; 2) degraded Quality-of-Service (QoS) of SeVs; and 3) privacy leakage risks. In this article, we develop a learning-based V2V computation offloading algorithm enhanced by SeV’s ability & trustfulness awareness to solve these problems. We emphasize that the proposed algorithm learns the offloading performance of candidate SeVs based on history offloading selections, without requiring the complete offloading information in advance. Additionally, both the QoS of SeVs and safe V2V computation offloading are enhanced in the proposed learning-based algorithm. Furthermore, we conduct extensive simulation experiments to validate the proposed algorithm. The results demonstrate that the proposed algorithm reduces the average task delay by 35% and 40%, and at the same time decreases the learning regret by 39% and 41%, compared to the algorithms without SeV’s ability and trustfulness awareness.
