The fundamental difference is that real-time systems must be predictable, even in the presence of faults. Hence, fault-tolerance and real-time requirements must be considered jointly and simultaneously when designing such systems. The challenge is to include the tilning and the fault-tolerance requirements in the specification of the system at every level of abstraction and to adopt a design methodology that considers system predictability even during fault detection. . The term `fault-tolerance' refers to a system having properties which enable it to deliver its specified function despite (certain) faults of its subsystem
Techniques for Fault Tolerance Fault tolerance is the ability to continue operating despite the failure of a limited subset of their hardware or software. So the goal of the system designer is to ensure that the probability of system failure is acceptably small. There can be either hardware fault or software fault, which disturbs the real time systems to meet their deadlines. 2.1 Fault Types. . While fault tolerance enables correct operation in the presence of soft errors, it usually introduces a time overhead. The time overhead is particularly important for a group of computer systems referred to as real-time systems (RTSs) where correct operation is deﬁned as producin Real-time systems often need to meet critical safety requirements under a variety of operating conditions. One factor that then needs attention is the ability of the system to overcome the effects of faults that may occur in the system. Such faults are usually deﬁned in terms of a fault-model. The degree of fault-tolerance of the system must be established in terms of the fault-model and the.

Hardware fault tolerance improves the dependability of distributed real-time systems by redundancy: adding extra hardware (processors, communication media, actuators, sensors) [11,34] or extra. Real time systems are systems in which there is a commitment for timely response by the computer to external stimuli. Real time applications have to function correctly even in presence of faults. Fault 2. Techniques for Fault Tolerance tolerance can be achieved by either hardware or software or time redundancy In this paper, we discuss fault-tolerant task scheduling techniques in real-time multiprocessor systems where aperiodic tasks arrive dynamically. For fault-tolerance, multiple copies of each task have to be scheduled on distinct processors in such systems. The authors propose a new technique for efficiently scheduling copies of tasks having small laxity. Then, we integrate our technique with.
Therefore, fault-tolerance and real-time techniques should be combined in such critical real-time systems . Researchers have made a close study on fault-tolerant theory and practice. For example,  investigate voting scheme in distributed systems and optimal rollback recovery, respectively. raditional fault-tolerant T techniques also focus onroll-back , which is impossible in many.

The four aspects of fault tolerance form the basis for all fault-tolerance techniques and provide a sound foundation for design and implementation of reliable systems (Anderson & Lee 1981). 4. Software design methodology In this section we will present a methodology for the construction of robus Critical real-time embedded systems need to make use of fault tolerance techniques to cope with operation time errors, either in hardware or software. Fault tolerance is usually applied by means of redundancy and diversity. Redundant hardware implies the establishment of a distributed system executing a set of fault tolerance strategies by software, and may also employ some form of diversity.
These requirements will typically be met by means of a combination of fault avoidance and fault tolerance techniques.

Real-time systems, fault tolerance, checkpointing, voltage scaling. 1. INTRODUCTION* Fault tolerance techniques are needed to ensure the dependability of embedded systems that operate in harsh environmental conditions. Tolerance to transient faults is especially important due to reduced noise margins caused by lower supply voltages. In addition, embedded systems are often energy-constrained. Fault tolerance is typically achieved in real-time systems through online fault detection [Shin and Lee 1984], checkpointing and rollback recovery [Chandy et al. 1975]. Figure 1 illustrates checkpointing and rollback recov-ery. At each checkpoint, the system saves its state in a secure device. When a fault is detected, the system rolls back to the most recent checkpoint and resumes normal. fault tolerance in dual-processor real-time systems. In this paper, by considering both transient and permanent faults, we develop energy-efﬁcient fault tolerance techniques for real-time systems deploying an arbitrary number of identical processors. First, we study the Paired-SS technique, where processors are organized as groups of two (i.e., pairs) and SS is applied within each pair of. Fault Tolerance for Real-Time Systems: Analysis and Optimization of Roll-back Recovery with Checkpointing Nikolov, Dimitar LU The advantage of this technique over other fault tolerance techniques is that it does not require a substantial amount of hardware redundancy. However, the major drawback of RRC is that it introduces time overhead that depends on the number of checkpoints that are.
The other attribute of real-time systems is fault-tolerance, i.e. a real-time system should continuetooperatecorrectly inthepresenceoffaults. Fault- tolerance could be achieved through replicated execution of tasks. Power and energy analysis related to scheduling and timeliness of real-time systems have been extensively inves-tigated, usually in the context of Dynamic Voltage Scaling (DVS) [3. Hard real-time systems, Energy minimization, Reliability 1. INTRODUCTION Many fault-tolerant real-time systems use time-redundancy techniques [1-5] where slack time is exploited to tolerate faults by performing recovery executions. However, for hard real-time systems that are used in safety-critical applications, time
Fault tolerance prevents the connection disruption arising from the system's component failures and therefore, high availability is achieved by ensuring no loss of service. Since fault tolerant systems provide real-time backup and usually depend on the redundant components, they are associated with additional costs. In addition, fault. Software Fault Tolerance Techniques: Nowadays, the need to avoid faults is a dominating factor all around the world. Whether you look at a child or an expert, everyone strives for perfection and try their best to avoid as well as prevent errors and mistakes. Similarly, software designers and programmers too, try their best to create software applications with no mistakes or faults. As software. techniques for power management do not consider fault tolerance [2, 3], and checkpoint placement strategies for fault tolerance do not address DPM [5, 6]. It is only recently that an attempt has been made to combine fault tolerance with DPM . There are three main reasons for combining DPM with fault tolerance in real-time embedded systems.
