Abstract: In this paper we are emphasizing on developing this project that will help the lecturers to take attendance easily, securely and is less error prone. For this, we are implementing software “Mobile Phone Based Attendance System (MPBAS)” based on Android Technology. We are inspired to work on MPBAS from the existing system E-Beat. MPBAS will help lecturers to take the attendance of students using Smart-phone. Lecturers will login to the phone application, get connected to the server and take attendance using Smartphone. After taking the attendance in the mobile, lecturers will send it over to the server using GPRS and attendance list will be updated automatically. Lecturers will be able to edit the attendance by login on to the website. Students will be able to view their own attendance as well as curriculum details. To reduce the chances of fake attendance, the project would include Location detection using GPS. Also email would be send to the students by the lecturers, notifying them of their regular activities. Thus, the project will ease the workload of the lecturers by providing them the platform wherein they will be able to take, manage, update and see the attendance of the students with efficiency. Also the students will remain updated regarding their current status and thus can improve the performance by increasing their cumulative attendance in time. Keywords: Android, Authorization, Authentication, Smart-phone, GPRS, GPS.
Our project aims in implementing software that will help lecturers to take the attendance of students using mobile/Smartphone. Lecturers will login to the phone application and get connected to the server. After login, they will take attendance using mobile phone. After taking the attendance in the mobile, lecturer will send it over to the server using GPRS. Lecturer will be able to edit attendance by login to the website and students will check their attendance using a website.
We have studied and visited the different websites and the literatures. As per the literature review, the various organizations and individuals have tried to overcome the problems in the traditional attendance system. Some of them are listed below: 2.1 E – Beat E - Beat is an electronic beat constable's night patrolling attendance system to avoid manual recording of time & attendance and to save the time by sign-in / sign-off at different beat points while patrolling. XIPHIAS has developed the Electronic Beat. It has features such as Compact, Light-weight, Pocket size, tamper proof. But it has a limitations regarding system specification. It is operable in fixed temp range i.e. 0 to 70° C. Very small memory storage as small as 64kb.it uses the Infra Red Serial port for data communication which is outdated. 2.2 Mobile Phone Based Attendance System in J2ME This project is based on J2ME technology. Professor enters the attendance to the mobile using keypad. It is a manual process. After saving the absentees or presenters in to the mobile, teacher can edit the attendance list in the mobile. And this attendance details can send to a computer using GPRS. It was developed considering the requirements of that time and has a very little future scope. The system has a limited bounds. It lags behind a lot as when compared to modern day technology such as Windows, Android, iphone .it also a platform dependent and version specific. It does not support the GPS technology to reduce the fake attendance. III. Proposed System Regarding the above literature research and taking in to consideration its drawbacks and...
