Abstract: The conventional method of taking attendance of students is time consuming and insecure, hence inefficient. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) based attendance system is one of the solutions to this problem. This system can be used to take attendance of students in schools, colleges, and universities. It can identify each person uniquely, based on his/her RFID tag type ID card, making the process of taking attendance easier, faster and secure. Successful fabrication of a prototype of such a system is presented in this paper. With real-time clock facility, the process can be made more accurate, since the time will be recorded. Through a GSM Module, messages can also be sent to the respective parents. The system can be connected to the computer through RS232 or Universal Serial Bus (USB) port to store the attendance in a database for comparison and authentication.
