Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) plays an essential role in the smart city. To handle the challenge of low latency and high reliability for recent wireless communication, non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) has been considered as a promising candidate for the future V2X systems. Our work proposes a cross-layer resource allocation framework for downlink NOMA systems. A stochastic problem is formulated to minimize the long-term total power consumption with dynamic traffic arrivals under limited feedback. Then, this problem can be transformed to a rate control problem and a mixed-integer programming resource allocation problem solved at each time slot based on the Lyapunov optimization. To reduce the computational complexity, we devise an efficient suboptimal resource allocation algorithm with the dynamic penalty factor. Also, we investigate the problem of the resource allocation for NOMA-V2X communication system. To cope with uncertainties of the dynamic channel information, we propose a reinforcement-learning based resource allocation to find the approximate optimal solutions. The numerical results indicate that our proposed algorithms can significantly reduce the delay compared with other methods while satisfying the QoS requirements, so as to tackle the congestion issues for V2X communication.
