TCN(Train Communication Network) adopts the master/slave protocol to implement real-time communication. In this network, a fault on the master node, cased by either hardware or software failure, makes the entire communication impossible over TCN. To reduce fault detection and recovery time, this paper propose the contention based mastership transfer algorithm. Slave nodes detect the fault of master node and search next master node using the proposed algorithm. This paper also shows the implementation results of a SoC-based Fault-Tolerant MVB Controller(FT-MVBC) which includes the fault-detect-logic as well as the MVB network logic to verify this algorithm.
