Face Recognition Based Attendance System is The New Thing

Being watched and/or monitored is a legitimate fear for many people. This is why facial recognition is slow to be accepted and welcomed in many industries. A field of work that would benefit the most out of facial recognition though, is that of attendance systems. The applications of Face Recognition Based Attendance System could be found in Schools, offices, events, and many others.
Most of us remember attendance at schools as the tutor calling out our names/registered numbers and us yelling back “PRESENT, MA’AM!”. All of that could soon change with the introduction of facial recognition in these systems.


Face Recognition Technology

Face Detection

  • The First step is to detect the face from photo/video.

Face Recognition

  • Recognise the face from the database.

Face Tracking

  • Monitor or track the face movement in the vicinity.

How Face Recognition Based Attendance System Work?

As you may already know, facial recognition systems need a database or a pre-recorded data set to compare captured images and identify faces. The Steps are as follows –

  • Performance optimized algorithm to process data in a fraction of seconds. A complete high-end configuration unit will be installed in the institute and the data capturing process will be initiated. The camera mounted with the machine will capture and process the images with various different angles and qualities along with the basic identification details for further processing initially -
    The Image is processed in this way to eliminated below issues -
    • Image quality : The quality of the reference image plays an important role in the identification process. If the resolution of the said image is not high enough, it can cause cameras to be tricked into believing that the person being scanned is not the same as in the photo. An easy solution is to ensure that both the reference images and scanning are performed by similar cameras.
    • Storage : Depending on the quality of the input data, a system would need an appropriate amount of storage. This could be troublesome if the data collected is of high quality and requires large amounts of storage space especially for events with a large expected attendance.
  • Identification & Attendance Management The camera mounted in the facility will record the movement of the object, and record matching with start from 1:N data set scanning of images from the database in a fraction of second. The Identity of the individual is verified with the database record and thus, attendance is recorded with the timestamp.
  • Sentiment Analysis A facial recognition technology when installed in the institute/organization can further help to analyze and/or monitor various human behavior. To analyze six distinct human emotions - happiness, sadness, fear, anger, surprise and disgust, and states – reading, writing, listening, talking, and many more.

Benefits :

  • Reduce duplication and fraud.
  • Save time.
  • Increase Efficiency.
  • Elimination of human error.
