This sounds interesting! Not sure how this works, but as I understand, this sensor technology detects and finds the origin of the faults in the RF cables. How can this be used to recover from a fault in the "can't fail" applications other that switching to the redundant system?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
