  1. redundancy check

    A redundancy check is a method used in data processing and communication to check the accuracy and integrity of data. It involves incorporating extra bits of data into transmitted or stored information to verify if it has been correctly received or retrieved. This is typically done for error detection and correction, as the redundant data helps in identifying, locating, and rectifying potential errors. Common types of redundancy checks include parity checks, checksums, and cyclic redundancy checks (CRCs).
