Effective Development and Verification of Railway Control Software

    Activity: Talks and presentationsConference presentations


    This course module presents a method for effective development of software for a product line of similar railway control systems. The software is constructed in three steps: first a specifications in a domain-specific language is created, then a formal behavioural controller model is automatically created from the specification, and finally the model is compiled into executable object code. Formal verification is performed automatically by tools at three levels: (1) the specification is checked to follow the rules of the domain, (2) the controller model is checked to ensure safety, and (3) the object code is verified to be a correct implementation of the controller model.
