Abstract

Family Tracing and Reunification (FTR) is the process whereby families separated by disasters are reunited. Current FTR systems use either inefficient paper-based forms and notice boards or digital registries that need the Internet, which may be unavailable during disasters. In this demonstration we present Milk Carton: a system that aids in FTR. Milk Carton creates a registry containing evacuee records. To find separated persons, Milk Carton uses Eigenfaces face recognition to match queries with existing records. Milk Carton uses a clustered architecture of Computing Nodes to handle data storage and execute the Eigenfaces algorithm. To operate under challenged-network environments, Milk Carton uses response patrol vehicles as data ferries to deliver data. In this demonstration, we show how Milk Carton uses Eigenfaces to locate separated persons and how data ferries and Computing Nodes function.
