Lyceum Of The Philippines University – Laguna Student Electronic Attendance And Logging System (Lpu-Laguna Seals)

Isaac M. Morallo



 This study was developed to create an electronic attendance and logging system using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Short Messaging Service (SMS) with a Web-based management system portal that allows user to access real time data to ensure campus security and smart information management. The students will use RFID card system to check in and out of the main entrance, to both track attendance and log time and prevent unauthorized entrance therefore utilize the RFID technology. The LPU-LAGUNA SEALS system developed in this study has six main functions: (1) to use the student RFID chip in the ID’s as gate pass, (2) to send daily SMS to parents about the student entry and exit time record, (3) to efficiently manage and monitor student attendance and logs thru intranet and internet, (4) to integrate Web-based system portal to access real time logs and attendance, (5) to provide printed reports and electronic files of attendance and logs, and (6) and implement the system in Lyceum of the Philippines – Laguna. This program was designed and developed using various programming languages and technologies such as Visual Basic 2010 (VB .NET), Hypertext Mark-up Language 5 (HTML5), Cascading Style Sheet 3 (CSS3), Hypertext Pre-processor (PHP) scripting language, JQuery, MySQL database engine, RFID and GSM (Global System for Mobile) module. This system is implemented at the main gate of LPU-Laguna using client-server technology which comprises the reader, the tag, the GSM module, a client PC and a database server. The researcher applied Rapid Application Development (RAD) method as the system framework model that focuses on the system development utilizing prototypes thereby flexibly adjusting requirements as the need arises. The system was successfully implemented by utilizing the use of both RFID and SMS technology in the process which resulted in an efficient monitoring and managing of attendance and logs of the students that provides campus security and efficient information management.
