TouchIn: An NFC Supported Attendance System in a University Environment

Media Anugerah Ayu and Barroon Ismaeel Ahmad
Abstract—Registering for attendance in education environments especially universities is a highly demanding activity as a result of increasing number of students. The attendance process normally involves circulating a paper for the students to register their names, or the lecturer calling the names and registering the students either in a paper or from PDA/PC. In the first case the students’ attention may be attracted while taking the lectures and at the same time they can register for students who do not being present in the class. While in the latter case the issue of cheating in the form of registering for their friends can be solved but imaging the number of students to be from 50 and above, a great portion of the lecture time will be wasted performing this process. In this paper we propose a smart attendance system using NFC that will simplify the attendance process, by simply touching an attendance poster or the lecturer’s NFC based mobile device in the class.

Index Terms—NFC technology, NFC mobile application smart attendance system, touching based system, wireless attendance system.
