The European Train Control System (ETCS) is a control system for the interoperability of the railways across Europe. The EuRailCheck project was promoted by the European Railway Agency for the development of a methodology and tools for the formalization and validation of the ETCS specifications. Within the project, we achieved three main results. First, we developed a methodology for the formalization and validation of the ETCS specifications. The methodology is based on a three-phases approach that goes from the informal analysis of the requirements, to their formalization and validation. Second, we developed a set of support tools, covering the various phases of the methodology. Third, we formalized a realistic subset of the specification in an industrial setting. The results of the project were positively evaluated by domain experts from different manufacturing and railway companies.
