Re: [Paparazzi-devel] Redundant System

I work daily with HA products used in business transactions (Oracle, Tibco). they get by with shared storage and state/heartbeat files etc...with two as a minimum.

If both autopilots had a process that both could access the same shared file it's possible to reliably determine if the other is "alive"...the failover one could take over should the primary go down.

So most apps I am familiar with require two and a shared file minimum so I am pretty sure it can be done with two.

Hello World

If you're going to make a redundant system, you need at least 3
systems in order to be able to decide if one failed.
You'll also need a way to switch actuators and other peripherals to
the "good" instance of the autopilot.

Hello all,

It would be very nice to implement a redundant system control for the
paparazzi project.
A system with for example two TWOGs. In case of a twog failure the other one
assume the control.

What do you think about it? It's difficult to design?
