In this paper we describe the integration of a robot control platform (Player/Stage) and a real robot (Pioneer P3DX) with PELEA (Planning, Execution and LEarning Architecture). PELEA is a general-purpose planning architecture suitable for a wide range of real world applications , from robotics to emergency management. It allows planning engineers to(More)
INTRODUCTION Pulmonary arterial hypertension is a major cause of mortality in systemic sclerosis. N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) has emerged as a candidate biomarker that may enable the early detection of systemic sclerosis-related pulmonary arterial hypertension (SSc-PAH). The objective of our study was to incorporate NT-proBNP into a(More)
INTRODUCTION Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a major cause of mortality in connective tissue disease (CTD). We sought to quantify survival and determine factors predictive of mortality in a cohort of patients with CTD-associated PAH (CTD-PAH) in the current era of advanced PAH therapy. METHODS Patients with right heart catheter proven CTD-PAH(More)
INTRODUCTION There is evidence that early screening for pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) in systemic sclerosis (SSc) improves outcomes. We compared the predictive accuracy of two recently published screening algorithms (DETECT 2013 and Australian Scleroderma Interest Group (ASIG) 2012) for SSc-associated PAH (SSc-PAH) with the commonly used European(More)
Care pathways are excellent tools for the standardization of care delivery and the improvement of clinical efficiency. The high dynamism and unpredictability of the clinical environment require pathways to be adaptable to the deviations that may arise during their execution. In this work we present a methodology for the identification, monitoring, detection(More)
When deploying planning applications as part of greater intelligent systems, either of small size or large-scale systems, there is an underlying knowledge acquisition, engineering and representation process that has to be undertaken with regards to the successful integration of a planning engine into the whole architecture of the system. In this paper we(More)
