The Implementation of a Bluetooth and GSM Module-Based Student Attendance System

The goal of this research is to develop and build a portable student attendance system for use in educational facilities as well as to design a user-friendly attendance mechanism, particularly for the lecturer, that includes security standards for the stored data. When the system is turned on, it will first display the SD card by saying "SD card is OK," and then it will also display the project's title (Attendance). Also included are the time, date, and year. Every student has been given an identifying number ranging from 01 to 50. If a student with the registration number 01 is called and you see him, you will then dial 01 using the implemented systems or serial monitor with the help of the Bluetooth device used in the system. Likewise, if another number is called, the same procedure will be followed as mentioned above. The SD Card used in the research is used to store the date recorded for future use. At the same time, the GSM Module is used to send messages to the registered mobile number in order to prove the student is present in the class at that particular time of lectures.
