FIT --- Fault Injection for TTA
The main objective of the FIT project is the experimental validation of the
system concepts of TTA (Time-Triggered Architectures), taking the prototype
TTP/C controller chip, developed within the ESPRIT project TTA, as the basis.
EC project under the guidance of Carinthia Institute of Technology.

Members of the team:
- C-Based Reference Model of TTP/C
Protocol - MSc. Thesis that describes the internal workings of C-Sim
based reference model of TTP/C. This document can serve as a complete
interface description of all modules of the TTP/C model and describes also
some of the more complicated algorithms used within the model.
- Software Project of Simulation-based Fault
Injection for TTA - MSc. Thesis that describes the developed TTP/C model
from software engineering point of view. The document also introduces the
basics of fault injection and provides a brief tutorial for building
applications based on the TTP/C C-Sim model. The Sinewave application is used
as an example that demonstrates the posibilities of an executable TTP/C
- Source code listings of the C-Sim model
of TTP/C - the source codes in this document match the version of
C-reference model described in the two MSc. theses above (i.e. v1.0, june
- Brief information about the published
source codes - this document is an excerpt from the second MSc. thesis.
It serves as a preface to the published source code listings and explains the
modular structure used within the whole project as well as code formating
- TTPOs Operating System Model -
description of the software structure and provided functionality. The
document can serve as a programmers manual for developing applications using
the C-Sim model of TTPOs.
- Latest version of the C-Sim Model —
a ZIP archive containing the source files of the C-Rerefence model and the
simulation framework for its execution. C-Sim is included in the package as
- Latest version of C-Sim model
documentation — this documentation is generated by Doxygen from the
latest version of the source codes. The documentation is in the form of a
detailed programmer's reference book.
So far there is little or no documentation available for these applications.
Some information can be extracted from the available publications. Further
documentation will be added as it becomes available.
- The laser demo application, 2002/11/13.
This version still uses an old version of the C-model, an updated version is
currently not available. The application is compiled with verbose logging
capability. This slows the computation considerably, but every step of the
simulation is recorded in a text file called 'debug.txt'.
- The original SineWave application,
- The SineWave robustness testing
- The Empty (Dummy) application,
- The Brake-by-Wire 1-wheel
(BBW1)application, 2002/11/13. This version still uses an old version of
the C-model, an updated version is not planned.
- The Brake-by-Wire 4-wheel (BBW4)
application, 2002/11/13. This version still uses an old version of the
C-model, an updated version should be made available soon.
