A self-supervised redundancy system has been developed for open-source microcontrollers, to tolerate hardware faults, and to recover from software faults. This device is intended to enable reliable deployment in rural and difficult access situations. An exclusion lock is used to prevent additional microcontrollers from simultaneously controlling the system. Watchdog timers provide resetting capability, to enable error recovery. The implementation of this system into a camera monitoring device was not completed, because of clashes in the intialisation of the modules.
