Error Recovery - An Overview

Dept. of Computer and Information Science, Linköping University, Sweden


This paper attempts to provide an overview of techniques and approaches to error recovery, both in automation and in other fields (such as autonomous robotics) where analogous problems occur. The term 'error recovery' is often used as a common name for the three sub areas error/fault detection, error/fault diagnose, and recovery from the resulting failure. All three areas will be covered. Rather than presenting different systems and approaches in-depth, different types of systems and approaches will be presented and compared.
