Ph.D Proposal
Distributed Real-Time Fault Tolerance

Abstract: High confidence computer systems are often directly or indirectly responsible for the safety of human lives and/or expensive equipment. For example, airplanes are equipped with aircraft flight control systems. Such systems require the ability to be resilient to faults as the cost of a failure can be lose of life or significant financial loss. High confidence systems are also typically real-time in nature as a delayed response in a computation or action can be just a catastrophic as an incorrect computation or action. This Ph.D. proposal will examine new techniques in the field of real time software fault tolerance. Specifically, techniques that cover soft errors, asynchronous software faults and missed deadlines will be explored. These new recovery techniques will be implemented in the Quest-V real-time operating system. The separation kernel design of Quest-V will help facilitate some of the design and implementation of the fault tolerance techniques.
