Chili Labs Solution
When searching for missing people BEZVESTS.LV volunteers use expensive and rare equipment: a drone with an infrared camera for searching in the forests, motorboat, a paraglider. Now almost everyone has a smartphone with mobile internet and GPS and that is enough for helping to find a missing person.
Chili Labs has developed Bezvests.lv app for informing about people who went missing and coordinating search groups. The more people know how the missing person looks like, the higher the chance someone remembers seeing him or her somewhere or recognizes the person on the street. This accelerates the search process and may save someone's life.
Bezvests.lv app helps the search leader to coordinate several search groups, track their routes and if needed send rescuers to a specific location point to make sure no stone left unturned.
Since July 2018, Bezvests.lv app was used in 9 search parties in which 3 missing persons were found alive. Chili Labs team joined the searching training with BEZVESTS.LV to get a better understanding of what functions the app needs and to find the optimal balance of signal precision, mobile data, and battery usage.
