Abstract

Finding a missing child is an important problem concerning not only parents but also our society. It is essential and natural to use serendipitous clues from neighbors for finding a missing child. In this paper, we explore a new architecture of crowd collaboration to expedite this mission-critical process and propose a crowd-sourced collaborative mobile application, CoSMiC. It helps parents find their missing child quickly on the spot before he or she completely disappears. A key idea lies in constructing the location history of a child via crowd participation, thereby leading parents to their child easily and quickly. We implement a prototype application and conduct extensive user studies to assess the design of the application and investigate its potential for practical use.
