Abstract: In all aspects of our life, we encounter event recording applications very often. Recording of any entity be it sound, pictures, events etc. is very useful as it enables us to manipulate data to our requirements. One can exploit the full potential of the recorded information for specific user defined purposes. Keeping in mind the significance of event recorders in today’s world, we arrived at a common decision of making embedded based instrument. The major problem faced by organizations is time consumption in taking attendance. This project totally eliminates the paper work in maintaining the attendance of each student in schools, colleges or universities. This instrument is easily scalable up to 150 students in 8 different subjects. Our goal is to have electronic files containing details about each student and their attendance status. This paper will try to organize the current attendance record system that will be much quicker and save time of instructors.
