  • Patent number: 11838930
    Abstract: The present disclosure discloses a multi-task joint computing unloading and resource allocation method based on D2D (Device-to-Device) communication. For solving the problems that computing resources of a local terminal cannot complete all computing tasks on time when there are multiple computing tasks with delay requirements on a local terminal, the method introduces a computing unloading mechanism to reduce the delay and the overhead of the local terminal itself. The method is based on a D2D communication technology. In the scenario where mobile terminals are densely distributed, the local terminal can unload the computing tasks at the same time to several surrounding idle terminals for processing. According to the method, a total overhead objective function is established in consideration of the task delay, energy consumption, and unloading fee.
