IJEECC Front Page

This paper describes the design of an RFID Employee Attendance And Tracking System. It is designed to track a moving employee inside the organization using RFID technology in mobile phones. The proposed system has hardware and software components. The hardware architecture consists of an RFID active tag, RFID tag reader and database server. The database server are located in the master station. The tag readers are distributed around the open area. The tags are programmed with employee’s profiles and are integrated in employee’s mobile. Communication between the tag reader and the server is done via wireless LANs. The software architecture consists of a communication driver that handles all communication functions done at the master station, an Application Programming Interface (API) that handles and analyzes the data, a friendly GUI and a database that saves all the attendance information.
Keywords:Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), RFID object tracking, Wireless system, Tracking Algorithm.
