Lukas Miedema and Clemens Grelck had their paper entitled “Strategy Switching: Smart Fault-Tolerance for Weakly-Hard Resource-Constrained Real-Time Applications” accepted at the International Conference on Software Engineering and Formal Methods (SEFM). The paper is also available within the conference proceedings.

The paper proposes a new approach for applying fault-tolerance, named strategy switching, to deal with single event upsets (SEUs) on Commercial off The Shelf (COTS) hardware. Strategy switching minimizes the effective unmitigated fault-rate by switching which tasks are to be run under a fault-tolerance scheme at runtime.
