The purpose of this project is to create a student card reader using the RFID technology.
The ECE had for a long time in its ambitions to settle swipe-card readers in the entrance of classrooms. Not only it would simplify the check of the presence of every pupil but would also allow to have no more traditional attendance sheets.
We thus managed our project towards a solution using the RFID technology to get back the information contained in the student cards. A connection with the server of the school is established. Socket TCP/IP are used to communicate the information relative to the passage of the card(map) to the sever, which sends back, as answer to the reader, what it just received. The reader sends back, as the student swipes, a message on the screen LCD indicating that this one is present. All the system is managed by a plaque Arduino which allows to make the connection between the various modules of the reader. To do it we are a team of 5 pupils the roles of which were carefully defined. This teamwork allowed us to take up this challenge successfully while teaching us a real teamwork.
Our project is thus ready to be integrated into the rooms of the ECE to work with the project " student card Multi-service " realized by the group which we supplied the server.
