Internet of Vehicles (IoV) applications integrating with edge computing will significantly drive the growth of IoV. However, the contradiction between the high-speed mobility of vehicles, the delay sensitivity of corresponding IoV applications and the limited coverage and resource capacity of distributed edge servers will pose challenges to the service continuity and stability of IoV applications. IoV application migration is a promising solution that can be supported by application containerization, a technology forseamless cross-edge-server application migration without user perception. Therefore, this paper proposes the container-based IoV edge application migration mechanism, consisting of three parts. The first is the migration trigger determination algorithm for cross-border migration and service degradation migration, respectively, based on trajectory prediction and traffic awareness to improve the determination accuracy. The second is the migration target decision calculation model for minimizing the average migration time and maximizing the average service time to reduce migration times and improve the stability and adaptability of migration decisions. The third is the migration decision algorithm based on the improved artificial bee colony algorithm to avoid local optimal migration decisions. Simulation results show that the proposed migration mechanism can reduce migration times, reduce average migration time, improve average service time and enhance the stability and adaptability of IoV application services.
