This paper describes aspects of a project aiming at creating a general, flexible and reusable software architecture to address planning problems in space missions. It introduces recent work to realize an open software framework for supporting development of planning and scheduling space applications. The framework, which is named TRF (Timeline-based(More)
The ROBOCARE project is aimed at creating an instance of integrated environment with software and robotic agents to actively assist an elderly person at home. In particular the project has synthesized a proactive environment for continuous daily activity monitoring in which an autonomous robot acts as a main interactor with the person. This paper accounts(More)
Mixed-Initiative approaches to Planning and Scheduling are being applied in different real world domains. While several recent successful examples of such tools encourage a wider use of this solving paradigm, research in mixed-initiative interaction is still at an early stage and many important issues need to be addressed. In particular, most of the work(More)
This paper describes results from the RoboCare project, whose aim is to create assistive intelligent environments for older people. The specific goal of the project has been to synthesize a multi-agent system in which robotic, software and sensory services are integrated to offer cognitive support to the older user at home. The paper describes the(More)
The emerging demographic trends toward an aging population involve an unflagging research of ways of assisting elderly people to stay independent for as long as possible. This means to be active at home and in the labour market, to prevent social isolation and promote societal inclusion. Both ICT and robotics technologies can contribute to help achieving(More)
This paper describes MEXAR2, a software tool that is currently used to synthesize the operational commands for data downlink from the on-board memory of an interplanetary space mission spacecraft to the ground stations. The tool has been in daily use by the Mission Planning Team of MARS EXPRESS at the European Space Agency since early 2005. Goal of this(More)
The ROBOCARE Domestic Environment (RDE) is the result of a three-year project aimed at developing cognitive support technology for elderly people. Specifically, the domestic environment is equipped with sensors, intelligent software components and devices which cooperate to provide cognitive support to the assisted person. The ROBOCARE interaction(More)
The O-OSCAR software architecture is a problem solving environment for complex scheduling problem that is based on a constraintbased representation. On top of this core representation a problem solver module and a schedule execution system guarantee a complete support to address a scheduling problem. Furthermore, a rather sophisticated interaction module(More)
Deep-space missions carry an ever larger set of different and complementary onboard payloads. Each payload generates data, and synthesizing it for optimized downlinking is one way to reduce the ratio of mission costs to science return. This is the main role of the Mars-Express scheduling architecture (Mexar2), an Al-based tool in daily use on the(More)
