Decentralized Trust Evaluation in Vehicular Internet of Things

Siri Guleng, Celimuge Wu, Xianfu Chen, Xiaoyan Wang, Tsutomu Yoshinaga, Yusheng Ji
2019 IEEE Access  
The proposed scheme uses a fuzzy logic-based trust calculation approach to evaluate the direct trust where trustee nodes are located within the transmission range of a trustor node.  ...  A reinforcement learning-based approach is also employed to estimate the indirect trust where the behaviors of trustee cannot be observed directly.  ...  This explains the advantage of the fuzzy logic-based approach that conducts a joint evaluation based on the cooperativeness factor, the honestness factor, and the responsibility factor.  ...
