Abstract: Uniqueness or individuality of an individual is his face. In this project face of an individual is used for the purpose of attendance making automatically. Attendance of the student is very important for every college, universities and school. Conventional methodology for taking attendance is by calling the name or roll number of the student and the attendance is recorded. Time consumption for this purpose is an important point of concern. Assume that the duration for one subject is around 60 minutes or 1 hour & to record attendance takes 5 to 10 minutes. For every tutor this is consumption of time. To stay away from these losses, an automatic process is used in this project which is based on image processing. In this project face detection and face recognition is used. Face detection is used to locate the position of face region and face recognition is used for marking the understudy’s attendance. The database of all the students in the class is stored and when the face of the individual student matches with one of the faces stored in the database then the attendance is recorded.
Keywords: Face Recognition, Attendance System, Face detection, PCA, Database.
