Our research is devoted to development of information infrastructure for e-service semi-automatic provision by using distributed data warehouses (DWs) of water protection domain. Development of software for semi-automatic service provision is based on artificial planner and structure of goals adapted for specialized needs of end users. Such e-service preparation mechanism can work under the unified coherent framework for solving the environment protection problems by evaluation of the processes of water consumption and contamination. The possibilities of integration of distributed DWs of water management sector into web portal meeting the requirements of conceptual interoperability are presented. Design approach is based on development of decision support system (DSS) that is designed as multilayered system with multi–componential, interoperable structure of databases (DBs), which are under responsibility of different public administration institutions such as European Environment Information and Observation Network (EIONET) and national environment protection agencies. The infrastructure of EIONET is used for supporting and improving data and information flows. The Water resource management information system (WRMIS) became the kernel component of DSS. WRMIS prototype facilitates data flows between the institutions and gives access to data for relevant institutions and the public providing e-services using proposed DSS. The research investigations are made according to the requirements of European Union Water Framework Directive, Sustainable Development Strategy and ReportNet as the EIONET infrastructure for supporting and improving data and information flows. Additional means are integrated in the structures of DSS as knowledge representation techniques based on conceptual schemas, data flow diagrams, and decision-making rules. The on-line management techniques are based on assurance of interoperability by using Open Web Platform W3C standards for web service development, such as XML, SOAP, HTTP, etc.

This paper analyses the possibilities of integrating different technological and knowledge representation techniques for the development of a framework for the remote control of multiple agents such as wheelchair-type robots. Large-scale multi-dimensional recognitions of emotional diagnoses of disabled persons often generate a large amount of multi-dimensional data with complex recognition mechanisms, based on the integration of different knowledge representation techniques and complex inference models. The problem is to reveal the main components of a diagnosis as well as to construct flexible decision making models. Sensors can help record primary data for monitoring objects. However the recognition of abnormal situations, clustering of emotional stages and resolutions for certain types of diagnoses is an oncoming issue for bio-robot constructors. The prediction criteria of the diagnosis of the emotional situations of disabled persons are described using knowledge based model of Petri nets. The research results present the development of multi-layered framework architecture with the integration of artificial agents for diagnosis recognition and control of further actions. The method of extension of Petri nets is introduced in the reasoning modules of robots that work in real time. The framework provides movement support for disabled individuals. The fuzzy reasoning is described by using fuzzy logical Petri nets in order to define the physiological state of disabled individuals through recognizing their emotions during their different activities.
