“On the development of dependable embedded applications using specialized wormholes”

Abstract: The development of embedded technologies to support the construction of dependable applications in environments of uncertain synchrony, reliability or security, raises many challenges. In previous work we introduced a framework based on the concept of wormholes, and some techniques for adaptation and fail-safety to construct dependable applications un- der this framework. But in order to set up a wormhole, it is necessary to enforce a hybrid system structure through the use of appropriate hardware and engineering approaches. This paper gives some initial steps towards the definition of new wormholes specifically suited for embedded systems. We first describe the framework that we intend to follow and then we discusses some existing processing and communication technologies that could serve our purposes.
