RFID based Attendance System


RFID Reader

The RFID reader is a standalone module with RFID reader and antenna. It‘s very small (32mmx32mm) in size and easy to integrate with any hardware design. It supports 125 KHz RFID tags and has DIP 0.1‖ pins to. Onboard antenna and hard plastic cover makes device small and sturdy. The module works on UART protocol which allows user to integrate it with any PC or Microcontroller based design. It also supports Wiegand protocol.

These tags contain at least two parts: an integrated circuit for storing and processing information, modulating and demodulating a radio-frequency (RF) signal, collecting DC power from the incident reader signal, and other specialized functions; and an antenna for receiving and transmitting the signal. The tag information is stored in a non-volatile memory. The RFID tag includes either fixed or programmable logic for processing the transmission and sensor data, respectively.

AVR Studio

AVR studio is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) by ATMEL for developing applications based on 8-bit AVR microcontroller. Prior to installation of AVR Studio you have to install the compiler WinAVR. This will allow AVR Studio to detect the compiler.


  1. Indolytics India Pvt Ltd is a developed “SchoolCop” (Student Tracking System), have the same system as attendance system and that features are Automated attendance of students, Automated attendance of staff, Automated attendance in the bus. This system also provide “Panic Button” on the iCard. It is the “World’s First iCard with Panic Button for Schools” that works for child safety. Works: a. Beacon card transmits the data. b. Bluetooth Low Energy Module Scans the nearby Beacons precisely. c. Scan records and then transmitted to cloud via WiFi.
