Attendance System Based on Biometric Security


Article Preview

The goal of Finger Print Based Attendance system is to take attendance of the student in a faster and efficient way. The attendance has been taken by calling out students name in the class which will be time consuming. After taking attendance the list will be sent to the department. Its ability is to uniquely identify each person based on their FINGER PRINT reader. In real time application capability of taking attendances will be more accurate by using Finger Print. Using an USB port or MAX 232 an attendance will be stored inside the database. Using an 8051 microcontroller data can be transferred to MAX 232.Thus the speed and security provided by Finger Print makes it valuable in the education field.
