A dynamic fault tolerance framework for remote robots
TLDR
This paper presents a layered fault tolerance framework containing new fault detection and tolerance schemes, divided into servo, interface, and supervisor layers which provide different levels of detection andolerance capabilities for structurally diverse robots.
Layered dynamic fault detection and tolerance for robots
TLDR
A layered intelligent control framework is developed containing new sensor-based fault detection and tolerance schemes which provide different levels of detection andolerance probabilities for structurally diverse robots.
Fault Tolerant Algorithmsand Architectures for
TLDR
The issue of performance versus reliability in the robot controller is concentrated on, and the importance and potential of multiprocessor control architectures from the fault tolerance perspective is highlighted.

This paper addresses the application of fault trees to the analysis of robot manipulator reliability and fault tolerance. Although a common and useful tool in other applications, fault trees have
Neural network based fault detection in robotic manipulators
TLDR
The stability and performance properties of the proposed fault detection scheme in the presence of system failure are rigorously established, and simulation examples are presented to illustrate the ability of the neural network based fault diagnosis methodology described in this paper to detect and accommodate faults in a simple two-link robotic system.

TLDR
Although evolutionary algorithms require a large number of evaluations to produce a useful solution, the results reported here indicate that almost complete functionality can be restored after only three evaluations on the 'physical' robot, as opposed to over 3000 evaluations if the compensatory controller is evolved all on the' physical' robot.
Fault tolerant algorithms and architectures for robotics
TLDR
This paper focuses on fault tolerance in the robot controller, and highlights the importance and potential of multiprocessor control architectures from the fault tolerance perspective.
Integration of fault tolerance and hardware redundancy techniques into the design of mobile platforms
TLDR
The prototype constructed as part of this work demonstrated basic principles and uses of a fault-tolerant mechanism, and is believed to be the first such system in its class.
