An Automated Biometric Attendance Management System with Dual Authentication Mechanism Based on Bluetooth and NFC Technologies
Attendance Management System (AMS) is the easiest way to keep track of attendance for community organizations for day-to-day monitoring of attendance and manpower analysis. AMS comes in four types. These are Manual, Biometric, Card-based or E-Commerce systems. In this paper, the authors present the implementation of an AMS that is based on Bluetooth and NFC technologies in a multi-user environment. It uses fingerprint and the Bluetooth address of the NFC-enabled phone of the user to authenticate the identity of the user. A Java based desktop application receives the NFC tag IDs, other information associated with the mobile phone and the user and submits them to an analyzer for the interpretation of the user's behavior.
