Development of Hybrid Radio Frequency Identification and Biometric Security Attendance System
Managing attendance in institutions and organizations has become a difficult challenge. The ability to compute attendance becomes a major task as manual computation produces errors, and also wastes a lot of time. Radio-Frequency IDentification (RFID) and biometrics have been individually used to solve the problem of attendance in recent years. RFID has a major security and integrity problem known as buddy punching. Although biometrics solved the security problem its complexity and longer execution time due to real time interaction with a central server which could be many distance away, has created a major setback to its implementation.
