Abstract: The most common difficulty that every teacher faces in class room is to take the attendance of the students one by one in each and every class. For the time being many automated systems has been proposed for taking student attendance. In this paper, I introduced an automated student attendance system based on the use of unique techniques for face detection and recognition. This system automatically detects the student when he or she enters the classroom and recognizes that specific student and marks the student’s attendance. This method also focuses on the specific features of different attributes such as the face, eye and nose of humans. In order to evaluate the performance of different face recognition system, different real-time situations are considered. This paper also suggests the technique for handling the technique such as spoofing and avoiding student proxy. This system helps track students compared to traditional or current systems and thereby saves time.
