    Abstract

    This paper presents three software patterns that can be used to improve control system dependability by implementing a decoupled architectural design with supporting fault handling. The decoupled architecture can also be used to introduce additional fault tolerance solutions gradually to the system, until a sufficient level of reliability has been achieved. Our patterns have been encountered originally in research of remote handling control systems used to teleoperate robotic manipulators, but all patterns have examples of other known uses as well.
