Biometric Attendance Prediction using Face Recognition Method


  • Department of IT, VIT University, Vellore – 632 014, Tamil Nadu, India


Objectives: Face recognition has arisen as a smart solution to discourse many present-day needs for empathy and the confirmation of identity claims. It fetches together the capacity of other biometric methods, which endeavor to tie uniqueness for the individual characteristic features of the body, and the further familiar functionality of visual reconnaissance systems. Face acknowledgment is a vital field for authentication purpose particularly in the case of student's attendance. This paper is intended at applying a digitized system for attendance recording. Methods/Statistical Analysis: In this process two methods are used to determine the face recognition attendance system- Principle Component Analysis (PCA), Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA). PCA is a statistical procedure that uses an orthogonal modification to transform a set of observations of probably correlated variables into a set of values of linearly uncorrelated variables. LDA is a generalization of Fisher's linear discriminant, a method used in statistics, pattern recognition and machine learning to find a linear permutation of features that shows or separates two or more classes of objects or events. Findings: However the current system of tracking attendance via records is difficult to manage. Face recognition based attendance system deals with the maintenance of the student's daily attendance details. Biometric appreciation comprises alike, within an open-mindedness of calculation, of pragmatic biometric behaviors in contradiction of formerly poised data for a focus. Estimated identical is obligatory due to the dissimilarities in biological characteristics and deeds both within and among persons. It generates the attendance for the student on basis of presence in the class. Application/Improvements: Project can be modernized in nearby future as, when a responsibility for the same arises, as it is very flexible in positions of growth. And the enrichment approach of camera formation based on the result of the position valuation in order to progress the face detection effectiveness.
