    Abstract

    This paper presents an application of the formal modelling and model checking toolkit mCRL2 and the model-based testing tool JTorX in the signalling domain. The mCRL2 toolkit is used to formally model the behaviour of a system at the core of signalling solutions: the interlocking. The model of the interlocking is validated through model-based testing. We use the mCRL2 toolkit to verify high-level safety properties of the interlocking software. The suitability of mCRL2, JTorX and our modelling approach is evaluated and suggestions are given for future research to improve the applicability of mCRL2 in the signalling domain.
