  • 1. 10th International Symposium on Distributed Computing and Artificial IntelligenceSalamanca, 22nd-24th May, 2013Mobile-Based Distributed Systemfor Managing Abandoned or Lost PetsJosé-Luis Poza-Luján(1), Daniel Garrote-Hildebrand(2), Juan-Luis Posadas-Yagüe(1) and José-Enrique Simó-Ten(1)(1) University Institute of Control Systems and Industrial Computing (ai2)(2) School of Engineering in Computer Science (ETSinf)Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV)Camino de vera, s/n. 46022 Valencia (Spain)1
  • 2. 10th International Symposium on Distributed Computing and Artificial IntelligenceSalamanca, 22nd-24th May, 2013Current problem• In most countries, legislation penalizes animalabuse and neglect. However, animal loss orabandonment is a current problem in somecommunities.• Numerous associations work in communities tohelp animals either welcoming in animal shelters orfinding them a new home.• Animal Protection Societies (APS) lack commoninformation, databases and channels to receiveanimal warnings and notify the news.2
  • 3. 10th International Symposium on Distributed Computing and Artificial IntelligenceSalamanca, 22nd-24th May, 2013• Limited to specificgeographic areas.• Different dataspecification.• Non-automatedsystems.Current solutions3HeLP Lost andAdoptable PetsPetfinderGlobalPetAlertCity of Calgary
  • 4. 10th International Symposium on Distributed Computing and Artificial IntelligenceSalamanca, 22nd-24th May, 2013• APS transmit the notice through their own webs aswell as in social networks.• Currently advises are sent without checkingwhether lost animals have been located.Besides, users receive messages without picking thegeographic area of interest as they can receiveadvises of lost animals that are located far awayfrom the area to be searched.• It is of special interest the use of the newtechnologies to optimize the entire process.Current solutions4
  • 5. 10th International Symposium on Distributed Computing and Artificial IntelligenceSalamanca, 22nd-24th May, 2013• There has been carried out several studies aboutprotocols that must be followed when either a lostanimal or abandoned animal is found by someone.• Most of these protocols insist specially on both theimportance of information management and thehuge possibilities of being applied into othertechnology fields regarding animal researches.• In order to follow these protocols, animalprotection societies usually use web pages andmobile applications in which they can warn about alost animal or search one to adopt.Proposed solution5
  • 6. 10th International Symposium on Distributed Computing and Artificial IntelligenceSalamanca, 22nd-24th May, 2013Proposed solution6• ClientI. Inform about a lost orabandoned pet1) By means a smartmobile device2) Through a WebApplicationII. Receive notices• ServerI.

  • 12. 10th International Symposium on Distributed Computing and Artificial IntelligenceSalamanca, 22nd-24th May, 2013Experiments and results• Nowadays the system is being developed.• First and second phase–We are developing the mobile application andthe server-side applications.–Some collation algorithms, with the selectivealarms, has been developed.• First experiments– Main data extraction phase– Label success rate: Total percentage of the labelsextracted successful assigned to a pet.12
  • 13. 10th International Symposium on Distributed Computing and Artificial IntelligenceSalamanca, 22nd-24th May, 2013Experiments and results• Performance tests–Communications functions–Data base insertion• Main data extraction–Data extractor from picture (white, dog)• Image segmentation (5 dogs and two images per dog)– Clustering method: dog: 56,7%  white: 82,3% success– Edge detection: dog: 63,6%  white: 82,1% succes• Main problem: The Label success rate depends on thequality of the image (environment, mobile devicemodel, etc.)13
  • 14. 10th International Symposium on Distributed Computing and Artificial IntelligenceSalamanca, 22nd-24th May, 2013Conclusions and future work• This project has several technological challengesthat should be achieved are mainly associated withdata collation and selective advises.• Challenges refer to avoid duplicate data indatabases or even to provide a simple storagemethod.• System suggests a few social challenges.– The main one consists of achieving a collation level thatpermits to increase the lost animal location, as selectivemessages allow delimiting the search up to the recentplaces in which the animal has been to.14
