Help to make an automatic school attendance maker and database manager using arduino? Answered
Hey Frnds! It struck in my mind to make an attendance board that will display the 'Total no. of students'; 'Total present Students'; and 'Total Absent Students' on a Info Board inside the class and there will be a sort of scanner that will scan the Id-Cards of students and compare the data with the pre-stored data and change it real-time on the info board. It will also enter the data aquired into and excel or access worksheet just as an attendance register. This will ease up the tasks very drastically.
The info board part is easy to make but im having problems to figure out how to make the scanner and how to register the data to a worksheet or database automatically. Actually im a beginner to arduino but there is going to be an IT and science exhibition in our school and i want to make this thing. Even if it cant be in a practical way isn't there a way to make a working "MODEL" of it.
I have provided the design. Plz Reply and thnxx in advance
