Automation System Software Assisting Educational Institutes for Attendance, Fee Dues, Report Generation Through Email and Mobile Phone Using Face Recognition


To keep track of a student in all aspects which starts from entering into an institution to completion of his/her course one has to maintain a system which provides all his details by just recognizing the face. The traditional attendance system in institutes follows the paper based method which involves lot of time wasting, wrong posting of attendance and chance of losing the register due to misplacement of registers and making the system unsuccessful. This work has been examined effectively planned and implemented by using face recognition system that automatically captures the students present in the classroom and post the attendance automatically and also shows the fee due details and a student can get the report by sending a email to the automated system mail id within few seconds. One can get the attendance report generated for a particular student based on identifying the students roll number and for faculty members the system will generate the entire class report through mail based on request. Developed a software assisting for educational institutions to post the students attendance either through capturing their face or taking video through mobile phones. The performance of the system shows good results in accuracy for identifying the face recognition in a group of students with less time taken for recognition and updation.
