An Architectural Framework for RFID Based Student Tracking System

R. Raju, B. Dhinesh Kumar, K.G. Surendar, R. Vimal


Embedded technologies are fast growing and used worldwide since it reduces man power and it produces efficient results without human intrusion. RFID is a new amazing technology and it plays a major role in embedded system. RFID is one of the most exciting technologies that satisfy the human by increasing profitability and increases efficiency. It is a replacement of Bar code since RFID has the ability to scan multiple items and it doesn‟t need line of sight. They are easy to implement than the wired technology and continuous monitoring helps in better understanding. This paper describes about an architectural framework for implementing a Student Tracking system over a wide range effectively via RFID technology. This system is designed specifically for the purpose of tracking the students inside the college as well as Smart Attendance Maintenance without the intervention of the staff using RFID. This system not only consist of a framework but also it contains the various steps to be done for implementing it. This system consist of both hardware as well as software components. It is designed to track the movement of the students within the college campus as well as automatic Attendance monitoring without human intervention using RFID technology. The hardware architecture consists of an RFID active tag, RFID transceiver, systems interconnected and database server.. The PC can be connected to the transceiver to read the tag id .Software part consist of an Application Programming Interface (API) that handles and analyses the data, an user-friendly GUI and a database that stores as well as retrieves all the student information.
