    For many years the real-time and safety practitioners have faced the challenge of trying to verify the timing characteristics of systems that have been designed with little consideration of timing. Part of our work has assessed the key characteristics of system architectures, considered the pros and cons of various design solutions, and selected a favoured option. When all the characteristics have... View full abstract»

    The realisation of dependable systems requires improved reliability and confidence assessment of the data obtained from sensors within the system. This may be achieved at the system level by sensor validation techniques through the systematic analysis of redundant sensor data using analytic or spatial redundancy. In automotive applications where cost is a major factor, the use of redundant sub-sys... View full abstract»

    A novel paradigm for designing fault-tolerant processor arrays inspired by biological processes is presented. These ideas can be applied to the design of fault-tolerant FPGAs, or for improvement of yield in the fabrication of WSI systems. Embryonics is a nascent discipline, therefore much research must be done to investigate in depth the fault-tolerant properties of these systems. Our approach is ... View full abstract»

  • A proposed design environment for dependable embedded systems

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):4/1 - 4/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (376 KB)

    Proposals for an integrated design environment to ease the design of complex embedded systems are presented. Embedded systems are computer-based systems which must respond to external stimuli within time scales determined by the external environment. Such systems are required to achieve ever more demanding behavioural, performance and safety requirements. Considerable effort is required to select ... View full abstract»
