Safety-related vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication plays an essential role in road safety and requires stringent high reliability and low latency. In this paper, we propose a novel approach of joint power control and resource allocation mode selection to solve the resource allocation problem of the mixed centralized/distributed V2X communication system under different network load conditions. Two major resource allocation modes are considered for V2X communication: scheduled resource allocation (centralized system) and UE autonomous resource selection mode (distributed system). In order to meet the specific quality-of-service-related demands of safety-related V2X communication, we aim to maximize overall information value of V2X communication by considering both ProSe Per-Packet Priority and communication link quality of V2X messages while meeting the requirements of minimum SINR and maximum transmit power limitation for both pedestrian user equipments (PUEs) and vehicular user equipments (VUEs). In particular, scenarios where the network is lightly loaded we propose Vacant Resource Blocks and Power Allocation algorithm while for scenarios wherein the network is heavily loaded we propose Occupied Resource Blocks and Power Allocation algorithm. Furthermore, the proposed algorithm can achieve a stable matching between VUEs and their reuse PUEs partners. Extensive simulation results show that both the information value of VUEs as well as the spectral efficiency of PUEs can be improved efficiently by the proposed approach.
