A Novel Approach to an Automated Attendance System


Ali Alzahrani


Vol. 18  No. 11  pp. 93-103


Radio frequency identification (RFID) systems have been utilized immensely as a result of recent technological advances. The RFID system is widely considered as the main technology to realize a ubiquitous computing environment, but the features of RFID systems and the constraints of RFID devices may result in various privacy problems. The major challenge in RFID technology is providing benefits while protecting from the threat of frauds. To address this problem, we developed a solution for combining two-factor authentication technology (RFID and Fingerprint) in order to ensure automatic identification for an attendance system. Human fingerprints are rich in details, and they are one of the most popular and accurate biometric technologies. Fingerprint image analysis using automatic identification technology has been developed to an extent in which it can be used in a university to maintain an attendance system, and it is far better in terms of cost and time than the manual method.
