Abstract: The main objective of this paper is node failure detection. To do this there are Binary Scheme and Non Binary Scheme. In Binary scheme, result will be one if Node is active and result will be zero if Node is not active. But main problem with binary scheme is we cannot check the signal strength. So we go for Non Binary Scheme, in this scheme we can check whether the node is in strong state or weak state to receive the signals. In the proposed system we are designing the scheme which can be used for both wired and wireless sensor network. If the node is in active state the data can be transferred else checks for the alternate route.

Keywords: Node Failure Binary Scheme, Non Binary Scheme, Fault Management.
