Vehicular networks are undergoing rapid transformations that require efficient and reliable management of computational tasks. Edge computing is supposed to provide these resources with minimal delay. The concept of vehicular micro clouds (VMCs) offers such services through collection among the vehicles, creating a virtual edge server. Within the VMC framework, the efficient migration of computational tasks among vehicles stands as a foundational yet intricate challenge. In this paper, we propose a novel task migration mechanism that leverages both task scheduling and offloading techniques to achieve this objective. Our mechanism mainly consists of two algorithmic modules: (1) task scheduling that prioritizes the tasks according to the earliest deadline first (EDF) principle before offloading decisions and (2) task offloading that assigns each task to the most appropriate vehicle according to the completion time optimization. As a particular feature, we consider the dwell time of cars, i.e., the estimated time vehicles stay within the VMC. We conduct extensive simulations to evaluate the impact of various parameters on task performance, such as data rate, traffic density, computing capacities, and computational demands. Our research advances the state-of-the-art in intelligent transportation system (ITS) by revealing the operational benefits of task migration in the VMC.
