Formal Modelling of Railway Safety and Capacity

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Alexei Iliasov, Professor Alexander RomanovskyORCiD



Development of future railway systems requires a rigorous modelling of safety and capacity conducted in an integrated way. Supported by EPSRC and Rail Safety and Standards Board the SafeCap project laid the foundations for overcoming challenges to railway capacity without undermining rail network safety. The main outcome of the project is the SafeCap Toolset, which relies on a formal Domain Specific Language, safety verification and capacity simulation methodologies. The work was conducted in close cooperation with Siemens Rail Automation and evaluated using the layouts of a number of UK stations. The Toolset is being further actively developed and evaluated in a series of industrial and impact acceleration projects.
