Fault Detection and Mutual Coordination in Various Cyborgs

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS, volume 10)


During multi-cyborgs area exploration fault may occur at any time. In case, if one cyborgs fails, another cyborgs can take over the task which is assigned to the failed cyborgs. In fact, fault tolerance and robustness to any cyborgs failures are major issues in favor of cyborgs systems, many studies have been devoted to this subject. If fault occurs, it is the duty of other cyborgss to take over his task and complete the process without any error in less time. So we have to design an approach for fault detection and tolerance which can work in any condition. Each cyborg updates its information in the global database and retrieves the information of other cyborgss from that database. Since cyborgs that are going through failures cannot update its information in the database periodically, they can be detected. Then any other cyborgs went there and complete the failed Cyborgs task then only the process stops. We show that down cyborgs are detected by functional cyborgss, and we assign their tasks to Working cyborgs using task allocation algorithm. Any one of the cyborgs, which is working takes over the failed cyborgs task and completes the process.
