In recent years, autonomous driving has attracted a vast amount of attention from both industry and academia, which has introduced large amounts of region-related data. In order to release the burden in core networks caused by the communication demands for such data, various in-vehicle storage (IVS) systems have been widely studied to bring contents closer to users. To cope with the mobility issue hindering the realization of IVS systems, in this paper, we propose a relay selection strategy (RSS) consisting of the relay map construction (RMC) algorithm and the relay pair matching (RPM) algorithm with the assistance of the vehicle route information. By considering both the potential transmission amount and the waiting time, the proposed RSS generates an overall optimal relay assignment for the IVS system. The performance gain of the proposed RSS compared with the baseline is evaluated by a realistic simulator in terms of the relay failure ratio, the retrieval throughput, and the RSU consumption ratio. Simulation results show that the proposed RSS achieves higher efficiency and robustness than the baseline.
