Automated Attendance System

Date created
The Automated Attendance System will automatically capture students' attendance using RFID and face recognition technology. The system is consisted of a camera, a RFID reader and tags, as well as a software system. The camera will capture the image of the user when he/she passes the RFID card by the reader. The RFID reader will collect the information from the tag, digitize it, and transmit it to the computer. The software will then retrieve the student information associated with the RFID tag, check whether the student is enrolled in the class and compare the student's photo with the image captured by the camera. With our Automated Attendance System, the lecturer can easily and automatically keep track of student attendance and can check that the student themselves are taking the exam.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440.  Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem.  This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
