Supply of Interlocking Rail Control Software Developed with Prover iLock for Stockholm Public Transport SL's Light Rail System Tvarbanan
STOCKHOLM - Prover Technology, a world leader in software technology for Automated Development of Rail Control Software, today announced that General Electric has placed an order for turnkey delivery of interlocking software developed with Prover iLock. The scope of the order includes the interlocking systems for the existing light rail system Tvarbanan as well as the new Solna branch, to be delivered by General Electric to Stockholm Public Transport SL.
Automated Development of Rail Control Software with Prover iLock
The interlocking software code for Tvarbanan will be developed and checked using the highly automated Prover iLock process. Based on design, test and safety requirements defined in the formal specification language PiSPEC, the Prover iLock tool suite generates the software code, test cases and safety requirements for each specific rail control system. The functional testing and formal safety verification is performed using the push-button tools Prover iLock Simulator and Prover iLock Verifier.
The use of formal verification for safety assessment is required by leading railway infrastructure managers, and highly recommended by standards such as CENELEC EN 50128. The reason: formal verification can establish that a rail control system is safe in all possible situations that can arise, as opposed to traditional and time-consuming methods based on test and review. The Prover iLock Process yields a very efficient and reliable development process, integrating generation of software code and documentation, functional testing and formal safety verification based on formal specifications.
