An Approach for Using Mobile Devices In Industrial Safety-Critical Embedded Systems
With the booming mobile market and increasing capability of mobile devices, mobile platforms like Android emerge from end-user to industrial application areas. This paper sketches an approach to implement industrial safety-critical embedded systems with fail-safe state on the mobile platform Android. The approach consists of safety-critical software design patterns, a real-time extension to the Android platform and fail-safe application life cycle management.
