Abstract
This paper presents software methods of improving fault tolerance in embedded systems. These methods have been adapted to a telemetry system dedicated to tracking vehicles for logistics purposes. The developed telemetry system allows us to monitor vehicle position and some technical parameters via GSM communication. It comprises the capability of remote software reconfiguration. To evaluate dependability of the system we use a fault injection technique based on simulating bit-flip errors within memory cells. For this purpose an original testbed has been developed. It provides not only the capability of disturbing internal state of the tested system (via JTAG interface) but also the possibility of controlling system input states and observing its behavior (in particular output signals) according to specified test scenarios. The whole test process is automatized. The paper presents a case study related to a commercial product but the described methodology and techniques can be extended for other embedded systems.
