We propose a task-aware middleware concept and provide details for its implementation on Network-on-Chip (NoC). We also list our ideas on the development of a simulation platform as an initial step towards creating fault-tolerance strategies for Kahn Process Networks (KPN) applications running on NoCs. In doing that, we extend our SACRE (Self-adaptive Component Run-time Environment) framework by integrating it with an open source NoC simulator, Noxim. We also hope that this work may help in identifying the requirements and implementing fault tolerance and adaptivity support on real platforms.
