Canadian Pacific Standardizes on Prover iLock for Interlocking System Design, Simulation and Formal Verification

May 4, 2010

STOCKHOLM and CALIFORNIA, May 4, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Prover Technology,
the world leader in Signaling Design Automation, today announced that it has
received an order for delivering a Prover iLock solution for development and
checking of interlocking systems from Canadian Pacific (CP), a Class 1
railway company. The Prover iLock solution will automate code generation,
formal safety verification and functional testing of interlocking system
software for platforms Microlok(R) II, ElectroLogIXS and VHLC. The order
includes licensing of a PiSPEC specification library for AREMA-based
signaling principles, which will be used together with the Prover iLock
solution for CP.

Gunnar Stalmarck, CEO at Prover Technology, said “It’s exciting to work
with progressive and safety minded railroads like CP. While operators are
always interested in technologies capable of reducing costs and improving
safety, they also need to be mindful of deploying proven tools. This
deployment is yet another sign that the industry is moving towards increased
use of modern engineering processes and tools.”

The benefits of the Prover iLock solution includes consistent software
design and software code for all interlocking systems, an automated
development process that saves engineering time and cost, push-button code
generation, formal verification and simulation-based functional testing on
the desktop rather than in the factory or field, with improved safety
verification coverage by the use of formal verification.

The AREMA specification library is currently under development, and will
be available later this year. For more information, contact info@prover.com.
