Fault Tolerance inReal-TimeSystems
Computing systems are already among almost any human activities. In particular,real-time systems are present in more and more complex tasks every day, wherean error can lead to catastrophic situations (even with danger to human life).Therefore, fault tolerance capabilities of this kind of systems are critical to their success during their lifetime cycle. Although fault tolerance strategies aredeveloped since a long time ago, they were oriented mainly to distributed systems.Distinct features of real-time systems must be converted to become fault tolerant,thus bringing a great field for research and development.This work first presents proper terminology about real-time systems and faulttolerance separately, and then brings a revision of studies about fault toleranceitems specific to real-time systems (different subjects). Finally, selected aspectsfrom the ones presented earlier are proven in a real model, in order to take thecorresponding conclusions and to discuss points of interest for future works.
