The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) has recently established in Rel. 14 a network-assisted resource allocation scheme for vehicular broadcast communications. Such novel paradigm is known as vehicle--to--vehicle (V2V) mode-3 and consists in eNodeBs engaging only in the distribution of sidelink subchannels among vehicles in coverage. Thereupon, without further intervention of the former, vehicles will broadcast their respective signals directly to their counterparts. Because the

We have identified four pivotal types of allocation requirements that must be guaranteed: one quality of service (QoS) requirement and three conflict conditions which must be precluded in order to preserve reception reliability. The underlying problem is formulated as a maximization of the system sum-capacity with four types of constraints that must be enforced. In addition, we propose a three-stage suboptimal approach that is cast as multiple independent knapsack problems (MIKPs). We compare the two approaches through simulations and show that the latter formulation can attain acceptable performance at lesser complexity.
