FIPA-OS AGENTS APPLIED TO PROCESS SCHEDULING IN REAl TIME MONITORING

Angel Gómez, Diego Cantorna, Carlos Dafonte, Bernardino Arcay

Abstract

This work presents a mechanism for the management of network tasks, based on the technology of Intelligent Agents applied to a project of Telemedicine in Intensive Care Units (ICUs).The telemedicine system provides the real time acquisition and analysis of physiological data of patients, the graphical visualisation of these data and their transmission to a central system charged with the collection and control of all the information concerning the patient, including knowledge based systems for medical reasoning. The system tasks are managed through the use of intelligent agents, implemented according to the FIPA standard. Each of the agents disposes of a knowledge-based system for its decision-making.
