Attendance Management by Using Barcode and Raspberry PI

Authors(3) :-Kanishk Srivastava, Vaibhav Joshi, Narayan Rawat

The main objective of this setup is to make a system that can count the attendance of the gathering present at a given place. For this only the attendants have to carry a barcoded ID which has to be scanned. As counting of attendance especially when the number is greater than a hundred is usually cumbersome and time consuming. The ID issued to the attendants will be scanned by a barcode reader installed at the entrance of the hall where the attendance has to be counted. A microcomputer attached to this reader will maintain a list of all the scanned specimens and will store the data in its memory. Also the microcomputer can be programmed to mail this list to a server so that a record can be maintained if the attendance is taken on a regular basis, along with the duration of the lecture. This process will eliminate the case of fake attendances and will give the time of class only for studying rather than wasting it for attendance.
