Project title: RFID Based Smart Attendance System

Project creator: @team_chkr

Short description: A system that takes attendance using RFID sensors. A student checks in by holding their own RFID card as an ID, and the system takes note through the RFID reader.

Response: I think this project is particularly interesting, as it involves a variety of components to create a pretty simple user interaction. I didn’t think that an attendance system would require incorporating assets that normally stay invisible, such as the RTC module for a real-time clock and the SD card module to hold all the data.

I don’t know that much about arduino’s capabilities yet to suggest further improvements for this project, but it would be nice if the system could be programmed so that it sends alerts to students that are absent if they haven’t been registered into the system at the right time.
