Spatial challenges for the vehicular Internet of Things come from mobility, high density, sparse connectivity, and heterogeneity. In this article, we propose two techniques, namely decentralized moving edge and multi-tier multi-access edge clustering, to handle these challenges. The vehicle as an edge concept of the decentralized moving edge provides a more suitable solution to meet the throughput and latency performance requirements by conducting distributed communication, data caching, and computing tasks at vehicles. Multi-tier multi-access edge clustering generates different levels of clusters for more efficient integration of different types of access technologies including licensed/unlicensed long-range low-throughput communications and unlicensed short-range high-throughput communications. We employ fuzzy logic to jointly consider multiple inherently contradictory metrics and use Q-learning to achieve a self-evolving capability. Realistic computer simulations are conducted to show the advantage of the proposed protocols over alternatives.
