In the last decade, MIMO spatial multiplexing and distributed beamforming play a significant role in improving datathroughput through cooperative transmission. It has been widely used in wireless communication, especially in 6G. However, thedistributed uplink beamforming is still an open problem in highly dynamic environments. However, the proposed 6G technologyrepresents the further integration of deep learning and wireless communication. In this paper, we propose Argute Distributed UplinkBeamforming (ArguteDUB), which uses a feedback algorithm with an offline-trained deep learning model to implement highly dynamicdistributed uplink beamforming for the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) in 6G. Specifically, each vehicle enables the base station (BS)/accesspoint (AP) to separate different channel state information (CSI) by inserting orthogonal sequences into the sending data. The BSadopts deep learning to filter the noise and predict the beamforming weight to achieve phase synchronization. Unlike traditionaldistributed uplink beamforming, ArguteDUB can be adapted to the highly dynamic time-varying channels. The simple network structureensures the fast response of ArguteDUB. In addition, we make ArguteDUB Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM)compatible so that it can be easily deployed in 6G networks. Our evaluation shows that ArguteDUB has an signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)gain of about 5dB to 5.3dB over the single vehicle transmission mode
