Design and Implementation of Smart Attendance System using Raspberry pi

Authors(2) :-G. Kavitha, K. Sankara

Numerous employees are announcing late on obligation and in this way, Attendance Management is a repetitive errand and a troublesome activity for a man to keep up its record. It is additionally imperative that on the off chance that we compute the loss of work because recently revealing it will be a colossal sum if various employees are more. Accordingly Attendance Monitoring System (AMS) encourages us to control work costs, limit consistence hazard, and enhance workforce profitability. It is likewise lessens the regulatory time related with attendance special cases and worker request. It is conceivable to keep up the record of extra minutes of representative and record of occasions moreover. In perspective of this, Attendance Management System is proposed utilizing Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag and finger print peruser. The framework takes attendance electronically with the assistance of the RFID and finger print gadget, and the recorded attendance is put away in a database. The algorithm and projects are creating utilizing python for the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. Status of attendance can be seen on Graphical User Interface (GUI).GSM/GPRS module is actualized to send the back rubs to the parent's mobile occasionally.
