This paper presents the rational for and an outline of the design of a time-triggered (TT) Ethernet that unifies real-time and non-real-time traffic into a single coherent communication architecture. TT Ethernet is intended to support all types of applications, from simple data acquisition systems, to multimedia systems up to the most demanding(More)
Arbitrary faults of a single node in a time-triggered architecture (TTA) bus topology system may cause error propagation to correct nodes and may lead to inconsistent system states. This has been observed in validation work using software implemented fault injection (SWIFI) and heavy-ion fault injection techniques in a TTA cluster. In a TTA system, the(More)
This paper presents the design of a Time-Triggered Eth-ernet (TTE) Switch, which is one of the core units of the Time-Triggered Ethernet system. Time-triggered Ethernet is a communication architecture intended to support event-triggered and time-triggered traffic in a single communication system. The TTE Switch distinguishes between two classes of traffic.(More)
We present a tunable diagnostic protocol for generic time-triggered (TT) systems to detect crash and send/receive omission faults. Compared to existing diagnostic and membership protocols for TT systems, it does not rely on the single-fault assumption and tolerates malicious faults. It runs at the application level and can be added on top of any TT system(More)
— The increasing use of electronics in the automotive and avionic domain has lead to dramatic improvements with respect to functionality, safety, and cost. However, with this growth of electronics the likelihood of failures due to faults originating from electronic equipment also increases. In order to tackle prevalent diagnostic problems such as the(More)
— We present on-line tunable diagnostic and membership protocols for generic time-triggered (TT) systems to detect crashes, send/receive omission faults and network partitions. Compared to existing diagnostic and membership protocols for TT systems, our protocols do not rely on the single-fault assumption and also tolerate non fail-silent (Byzantine)(More)
This paper presents an experimental evaluation of the fault-tolerant communication (FTCOM) layer of the DECOS integrated architecture. The FTCOM layer implements different agreement functions that detect and mask errors sent either by one node using replicated communication channels or by redundant nodes. DECOS facilitates a move from a federated to an(More)
