Students attendance in the classroom is very important task and if taken manually wastes a lot of time. There are many automatic methods available for this purpose, i.e., biometric attendance. All these methods also waste time because students have to make a queue to touch their thumb on the scanning device. This paper describes the efficient algorithm that automatically marks the attendance without human intervention based on embedded Linux. This attendance is recorded by using a camera attached in front of classroom that is continuously capturing images of students detect the faces in images and compare the detected faces with the database and mark the attendance.
