Part of the Cooperative Systems book series (COSY, volume 2)


For fault tolerant aircraft control systems, it is crucial to detect and isolate sensor/actuator faults. For this purpose, various approaches have been proposed in the literature (Eide and Maybeck,1996; Menke and Maybeck, 1995; Riggins and Ribbens, 1997).
