This paper proposes a novel design for linear precoder in underlay Device-to-Device (D2D) communication using cellular network, specifically for a use case with vehicle-to-vehicle communication and platooning. To increase the communication reliability, we develop an optimization algorithm for precoder that takes into account the outage probability when channel state information (CSI) is only partially available at devices and transmission could be in outage. The algorithm aims at maximizing the sum throughput over each transmission link received at one device, while constraining the interference caused by the transmit power from each device to the cellular network. Due to the intractable form of outage probability, an extended Markov Inequality is used to transform the problem into an upper-bound expression. A two-step alternating algorithm is then adapted to solve the multi-variable optimization. The proposed algorithm is compared with other state-of-the-art technologies in the field of vehicular communication for achieving high throughput. Simulation results show that our proposed algorithm outperforms the current techniques and achieves higher average throughput with extremely low outage probability, thus enables reliable vehicle-to-vehicle communication for platooning in a D2D underlay setting.
