Abstract

It is essential that safe data transmission between systems in a distributed life-critical application occurs in a safe manner. To date this transmission has occurred in a parallel form, however rising material and labour costs have made this method of safe data transmission expensive. In this paper a development of Fail-Safe Data Transmission System (FSDTS), which can be used in these distributed applications, is presented.
