A Framework for the Formal Verification of Networks of Railway Interlockings - Application to the Belgian Railway

Christophe Limbree, Charles Pecheur
2019 Electronic Communications of the EASST  
Much research propose to verify the safety properties of such systems by means of model checking.  ...  Each interlocking is seen as the component of a larger system (i.e., station) and interacts with its neighbours by means of interfaces.  ...  Currently the validation of the application data relies on the combination of different V&V activities such as functional tests, safety tests, and application data reviewing.  ...

Interlocking Control by Distributed Signal Boxes: Design and Verification with the SPIN Model Checker [chapter]

Stylianos Basagiannis, Panagiotis Katsaros, Andrew Pombortsis
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Signal boxes correspond to the network's interlocking points and communicate only with their neighbor signal boxes. Communication takes place by the use of rendezvous communication channels.  ...  Also, exhaustive simulation and testing can easily miss system errors, whether they are life-critical or not.  ...  SPIN was also used in [7] where the authors present a model of the same system and validate certain safety properties, in the presence of Byzantine system components or of some hardware temporary faults  ...
