Fault-Tolerant Systems Validation Technology Development One of the most important and challenging aspects of faul t-tolerant sys- tems development is the validation process.

The validation process comprises the activities required to insure the agreement of the system realization with the system specification. A preliminary validation methodology for fault tolerant systems documented.

A general framework for a validation methodology is presented along with a set of specific tasks intended for the validation of two specimen system, SIFT and FTMP. Two major areas of research are : K. Trivedi, J.

His research interest includes Fault Tolerant Control (FTC), supervisory, fault detection methods and their : Springer-Verlag London. • an overview of fault-tolerant flight control techniques; • the necessary equations for the modeling of small UAVs; • a complete nonlinear FDI system based on extended Kalman filters; and • a nonlinear flight control and guidance by: The Apollo guidance and control system employed proven, highly reliable components and triple modular redundancy (TMR) with voting to select the correct output.

Improvements in hardware reli-ability, and our greater knowledge of faults and events which trigger them, has led to improved design methods for fault-tolerant systems which are affordable. Fault-Tolerant Process Control focuses on the development of general, yet practical, methods for the design of advanced fault-tolerant control systems; these ensure an efficient fault detection and a timely response to enhance fault recovery, prevent faults from propagating or developing.

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): The goal of formal methods research in the Systems Validation Methods Branch (SVMB) at NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) is the development of design and verification methodologies to support the development of provably correct system designs for life-critical control applications.

The overall objective of the SysTest project was to develop a Verification, Validation and Testing (VVT) methodology and economic model in order to. realize improved product quality at reduced cost and increased availability. Fault-tolerant control is used in systems that need to be able to detect faults and prevent simple faults related to control loops from developing into production stoppages or failures at a plant level.

This is obtained by combining fault detection with supervisory control and re Cited by: This paper describes the development of an Advanced Research Integrated Avionics (ARIA) system for a research effort at West Virginia University (WVU) focusing on the design of fault-tolerant control systems toward improving aviation safety.

The system seeks to improve upon WVU’s existing avionics system by incorporating more functionality, flexibility, and computational performance while. A fault tolerant control strategy for pressure-independent VAV systems is developed.

• The new strategy is permanently implemented in a high-rise building at large scale. • The supply air static pressure is reduced significantly resulting in % power saving. • Space air temperature of all individual VAV terminals are by: 5.

NASA should play a major role in the development and validation of the key technologies in avionics and control, including system development and integration, simulator and/or experimental flight validation, and serving in a technical advisory capacity for industry and other agencies of the government.

We describe LIMA and its application to case studies motivated by avionics : Benjamin F. Jones, Lee Pike, Srivatsan Varadarajan, Brendan Hall. Early FBW systems, such as on the F and Airbus A, were considered revolutionary and were introduced with extreme caution.

These early systems and their successors all make use of redundant and fault-tolerant avionics to provide the required dependability and safety, but have used significantly different architectures.

Fault tolerance is the property that enables a system to continue operating properly in the event of the failure of (or one or more faults within) some of its components.

If its operating quality decreases at all, the decrease is proportional to the severity of the failure, as compared to a naively designed system, in which even a small failure can cause total breakdown.

Our research group organized the International Symposium on Distributed Computing (DISC) conference held in Budapest between the 14 th and 18 th of October DISC is a prestigious international forum on the theory, design, analysis, implementation, and application of distributed systems and networks.

As the complexity of information systems and the costs of potential failures are increasing, it becomes more and more important to prove that the design of the critical system components is correct. One of the typical solutions for the challenge of provably correct design is the application of formal methods.

The results of this research programme on FTFC, as described in this paper, have been published in the book Fault tolerant §ight control ¡ a Benchmark challenge by Springer-Verlag () under the Lecture notes in control and information sciences series (LNCIS).

AI algorithms are increasingly used in safety-critical applications, such as autonomous driving and robotics. Unfortunately, methods developed for ultra-reliable software, such as avionics, depend on measures of structural coverage that do not apply to neural networks or other black-box functions often used in machine learning.

A different approach that can be used is to ensure that all. ESS which uses a distributed system controlled by the 3B20D fault tolerant computer. The largest commercial success in fault-tolerant computing has been in the area of transaction processing for banks, airline reservations, etc.
