Automated Attendance SMS Delivered Parents Mobile Case Study
GD Goenka International School Case Study- An educational institute solution.
Problem Statement: Customer wants to automate the attendance of students. A lot of time is wasted in marking the attendance of students. The major concern is the safety of students as all the students are coming from renewed families of the city. Notification of student arrival in school is required.
Expected Solution by Customer
There are 2 options available for the customer.
- RFID Based Time attendance System. In this system, every student has issued a unique card and that card is used to mark the attendance of students. This has some drawbacks which customer wants to overcome. (a) Buddy punching: Students punch their friend’s cards and do proxy attendance. (b) Touch the cards: In this students need to touch the cards to the RFID readers which again customer doesn’t want.
- UHF Card Readers: UHF cards readers have the comparatively higher range as compared to RFID card readers. So a student need not go near to the device to mark the attendance. But this has again a limitation in which if students going in a crowd reader doesn’t read the card and mark student absent. Since the solution is going to be used for small kids and students of K-12 so there are chances of students going in the crowd with their friends.
Attendance Management System with SMS Alert We proposed client face recognition machines integrated with etimeTracklite Software. Biometric for kids is always a question will it work? Yes, when tested found it is able to identify the face of a 3-year-old kid easily and is able to mark the attendance. So, we installed one machine in front of every classroom which is attached through a network cable to the main server room. In the server room, our software is running fetching records of the student punches in real-time and sending SMS to the parents using the SMS API. The present text, as well as absent text, is sent to the parent’s mobile number automatically with the software. The student name followed by some text with exact punch time is sent to the parent mobile about the presence of their wards. After a certain time, an absent SMS is pushed to the parent number informing about the student absent. A similar solution is implemented in the Bal Bharti School, Bahadurgarh with 60 machines one in front of every classroom. Then the solution keeps on replicating itself and reached every tuition and coaching institute with real-time SMS delivery.
