A Bio-Inspired Fault-tolerant Hardware System Supporting Hierarchical Self-healing
AbstractThis paper utilizes biological principles to design bio-inspired fault-tolerant system name eTissue. It imitates four biological principles: the match-based recognition mechanism in protein sorting equips eTissue a flexible cell replacement capability; substitution among homogeneous cells, differentiation of adult stem cells, and conversion between heterogeneous cells mechanisms compose a three-level dynamic self-healing strategy. Fault-injection experiments show that eTissue has promising self-healing capabilities. Ill. 2, bibl. 6, tabl. 1 (in English; abstracts in English and Lithuanian).
