Abstract

The diverse applications and high-quality services in satellite-enabled smart cities have led to geographical unbalance of computation requirements. Traditional centralized cloud services and massive migration of computing tasks result in the increase of network delay and the aggravation of network congestion. Deploying fog nodes at the network edge has become a way to improve the quality of service (QoS). However, the dynamic requirements and application in various scenarios still challenge the network, resulting in geographical unbalance of computing resource demands. Nowadays, computing resources of on-board computers and devices in the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) are abundant enough to mitigate the geographical unbalances in computing power demand. Efficient usage of the natural mobility of constantly moving vehicles to solve the problems above remains an urgent need. In this paper, vehicle mobility-based geographical migration model of vehicular computing resource is established for satellite-enabled smart cities. By using the road- status-awareness of fog nodes, the status of roads is precisely quantified as the basis for vehicle mobility- based resource migration. An incentive scheme that affects the vehicle path selection through resource pricing is proposed to balance the resource requirements and to geographically allocate computing resources. Simulation results indicate that the advantages and efficiency of the proposed scheme are significant.
