Towards fault tolerant pervasive computing

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Pervasive computing promises to integrate digital and physical devices. For it to be successful, it should be non-intrusive and fault tolerant. Broadly, faults in a pervasive system can be classified into device, application, network, and service failures. Fortunately, some approaches are now available to counter these faults. These include surrogate application/device usage, alternate notification mechanisms, handling errors in sensing and inferring context, N-inversion, fault notification, and a technique that makes use of context information.
