In task offloading systems, it is imperative to guarantee that an offloaded task is completed within a pre-specified deadline. In this paper, we propose a distributed device-to-device (D2D) offloading system (DDOS) in which a task owner opportunistically broadcasts an offloading request that includes its mobility level and task completion deadline. After receiving the request, mobile devices in the vicinity of the task owner employ a constraint stochastic game to decide, in a distributed manner, whether to accept the request or not. We devise a best response dynamics-based algorithm (BRDA) to obtain a multi-policy constrained Nash equilibrium. Evaluation results demonstrate that DDOS can guarantee a high on-time task completion probability, as well as a low energy consumption.
