This paper proposes an energy efficient real-time scheduling strategy called EnSuRe, which (i) executes real-time tasks on low power consuming primary processors to enhance the system accuracy by maintaining the deadline and (ii) provides reliability against a fixed number of transient faults by selectively executing backup tasks on high power consuming backup processor. Simulation results reveal that EnSuRe consumes nearly 25% less energy, compared to existing techniques, while satisfying the fault tolerance requirements. EnSuRe is also able to achieve 75% system accuracy with 50% system utilisation. Further, the obtained simulation outcomes are validated on benchmark tasks via a fault injection framework on Xilinx ZYNQ APSoC heterogeneous dual core platform.
