Theoretical Background
A.R.A (Attendance and Room Automation), as the title suggest, this project is about automation. In applying creating this project we, the proponents, aim to integrate multiple devices to produce a system that would automate a room as well as attendance checking. But what is automation? According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, automation is “the technique of making an apparatus, a process, or a system operates automatically. The theory of automation states that “there are three building blocks of automation (1) a source of power to perform action, (2) feedback controls, and (3) machine programming.” (http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/44912/automation/24840/Modern-developments#toc24841) Power source, being a self-running device, it is necessary for it to have its own power source. The feedback control is the sensing part of the system; this will be the one that gathers the input to be processed delivers the output and will run the actuating device. Last would be the machine programming, provided by the proponents for the whole system to run.
Theoretical Framework
Each of the devices is supported by different theories which we hope we would be able to integrate. A microcontroller “is a small computer on a single IC containing a processor core, memory, and a programmable Input/Output peripheral.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microcontroller) We will be using this device as the brain of the system. We will be using the memory of the IC to encode the program and the I/O system inside the IC to retrieve data through RFID and other communication interface. Relays switches are switches which are electronically controlled. “There are only two fundamentally different operating principles: (1) electromagnetic attraction, and (2) electromagnetic induction. “(www.gedigitalenergy.com/multilin/notes/artsci/art02.pdf ). Wireless communication is a…...

Home Automation

...History The early days of home automation have emerged in the mid-1980s. It all starts with the miniaturization of electronic and computer systems. Second, the development of electronic components in household products has significantly improved performance, streamlined and reduced the costs of energy consumption equipment. The appearance on the market of communication services such as high-performance digital networks is not foreign to the emergence of innovative systems-oriented communication and exchange in the building and out of it . It is in order to provide more comfort, security and ease of use in building management that automation has had its premises. The observation of various work done since 1985 shows a development of automation in three areas: • The specification of the PLC: the products are diversifying in order to be a strong fit with customer needs; • Interfaces support: a growing effort is provided to make the man / machine interface more efficient and enjoyable; • Communication tools in the home: cable, internet and telephony are factors that are changing every day interactions between people and between them and the machines. There are just over 20 years of SECURISCAN THOMSON was the first home automation system installed in a house. But current technology did not exist and the installation was not a pioneer success. Since then, considerable advances have occurred to help the man in the life of every day. A multitude of products have been created......

...of computers to control a particular process in order to increase reliability and efficiency, often through the replacement of employees. For a manufacturer, this could entail using robotic assembly lines to manufacture a product. Automation is the use of control systems (such as numerical control, programmable logic control, and other industrial control systems), in concern with other applications of information technology (such as computer-aided technologies [CAD, CAM], to control industrial machinery and processes, reducing the need for human intervention. In the scope of industrialization, automation is a step beyond mechanization. Whereas mechanization provided human operators with machinery to assist them with the muscular requirements of work, automation greatly reduces the need for human sensory and mental requirements as well. Processes and systems can also be automated. Automation plays an increasingly important role in the global economy and in daily experience. Engineers strive to combine automated devices with mathematical and organizational tools to create complex systems for a rapidly expanding range of applications and human activities. Many roles for humans in industrial processes presently lie beyond the scope of automation. Human-level pattern recognition, language recognition, and language production ability are well beyond the capabilities of modern mechanical and computer systems. Tasks requiring subjective assessment or synthesis of complex......

Automated Attendance Monitoring System

...CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION Background of the Study Student absences jeopardize student and school success. Academic achievement scores are correlated with school attendance. Students who are not at school cannot receive instruction. Excessive school absence is a precursor of school dropout and is related to juvenile delinquency. And, because average daily attendance rates are a common determiner of school funding, absences mean that schools have less resources to do the job. Given all this, it is not surprising that reducing school absences is a top priority for many schools. (http://smhp.psych.ucla.edu) Now-a-days intelligent automation has stepped its presence in every field all over the world. This project has a stepping in the attendance and power management of the classrooms in the colleges/schools. The use of low cost technologies for highly reliable applications with the help of newly innovated algorithms makes the automation process to reach the consumers at cheaper and reliable cost. (http://www.muxtronics.com) The widespread of embedded computer networks as part of everyday peoples’ lives is leading the current research towards smart environments and Ambient Intelligence (AmI). AmI is a new information paradigm where people are empowered through a digital environment that is “aware” of their presence and context and is sensitive, adaptive and responsive to their needs. Mark Weiser, described the smart environments as physical worlds that invisibly......

...energy / power. Till now the company is successful since its establishment. Scope and Limitation: The study focuses on the monitoring of attendances of the employees in World Citi Colleges. The attendance monitoring system is concerned in getting the time when a student and employees logs in and out and whether the employees and students is present or not. Flow of the Current System: This system handles their attendance by using time cards and Bundy clock. The time card holds a lot of information about the employee and students. The Bundy Clock is the one that puts the time when the employee and students checks in or out. First an employee and students is given a time card which holds their attendance information. They insert their time card into the Bundy clock which holds the time. After they have finished their work, they should insert again their time cards into the Bundy clock for the information when and what time they left the campus or school. The computation of hours work is done after the last employee or students checks out of the campus or school, they do this by checking the log in and log out of the time card of an employee and student and compute for the working hours on that certain day. Data Managed by the Current System: There are a lot of data that the company keeps for reports. And attendance is one of the most important things that the company should monitor.

Automation

...Three Automation Types Quantity Quantity A. Fixed Automation A system in which the sequence of processing (or assembly) operations is fixed by the equipment configuration. The operations in the sequence are usually simple. lt is the integration and coordination of many such operations into one piece of equipment that makes the system complex. Typical features: * Suited to high production quantities * High initial investment for custom-engineered equipment * High production rates * Relatively inflexible in accommodating product variety The economic justification for fixed automation is found in products with very high demand rates and volumes. The high initial cost of the equipment can be spread over a very large number of units, thus making the unit cost attractive compared to alternative methods of production. Examples of fixed automation include mechanized assembly lines (starting around 1913 - the product moved along mechanized conveyors, but the workstations along the line were manually operated) and machining transfer lines (beginning around 1924). B. Programmable Automation The production equipment is designed with the capability to change the sequence of operations through reprogramming to accommodate different product configurations. The operation sequence is controlled by a program, which is a set of instructions coded so that the system can read and interpret them. New programs can......

Attendance Management

...it lives each and every day. 1.1.2. Importance of the topic from macro and micro perspective The purpose of attendance management is to develop a willingness on the part of all employees to attend work regularly and to assist them in motivating their co-workers to attend work regularly. This can be done through; 1. Addressing the physical and emotional needs of employees 2. Communicating the attendance goals of the organization so employees can understand and identify with them 3. Dealing with cases of excessive absenteeism effectively and fairly to produce deterrence. Successful administration of an attendance management program requires managers and supervisors to be aware of, and to create work environments in which the following can be actualized; 1. The greater the extent to which individuals identify with the goals of the organization and care what happens to it, the greater their motivation to be regular in attendance. 2. The more that people find their jobs meaningful to them, the greater their motivation to be regular in attendance. 3. As employees’ workloads increase due to the absence of a co-worker, peer pressure is exerted on the absent co-worker to attend work on a regular basis. 4. The more people like working for the organization, the higher their motivation to attend regularly. Recognition of good employee attendance helps improve attendance. 5. Employees will have a lower absence ratio if they feel free to discuss their on-the-job problems with......

...RUNNING HEAD: JOB AUTOMATION Job Automation By: Stefon Brown CMGT/556 February 27, 2012 Peng Ratchaworapong Introduction School District 189 enrolls approximately 6’000 to 7’000 students across 24 schools, and serves the communities of Charleston, Columbia, Beaufort, Summerville, Orangeburg and Florence, South Carolina. The recent system, SIMS (School Information Management System) (Open- Scope, 2008), had been the automation system for approximately 10 years. With the fluctuation growing enrollment over years and dropped enrollment over years the district came to the conclusion that the current school management software was no longer compatible with the changes in the school district. There was a need for new software that could keep up with the changes inside and interaction outside the school district. Advanced software needs are needed for supplying advanced services. Automated Processes According to Skyward, Inc., Skyward is an industry - leading student finance, and human resources administrative software exclusively for K-12 school districts (Skyward, 1999-2011).

...Arun Kumar Mishra and Debidutt Acharya, “WIRELESS FINGERPRINT BASED STUDENT ATTENDANCE SYSTEM” , 2010. Biometrics is the very study of identifying a person by his/her physical traits that are inherent and unique to only the person concerned. Biometric measurement and assessment include fingerprint verification, iris recognition, palm geometry, face recognition etc. The above mentioned techniques work with different levels of functionality and accuracy. Accuracy and reliability are the two most important parameters when it comes to biometric applications. Fingerprint verification is one of the oldest known biometric techniques known but still is the most widely used because of its simplicity and good levels of accuracy. It’s a well known fact that every human being is born with a different pattern on the fingers and this feature is exploited to identify and differentiate between two different persons. The application in an educational institute is worth noting because of the benefits it brings along with it. The fingerprint recognition and verification technique can easily replace an attendance sheet and save time wasted on calling out roll numbers in the class. A fingerprint detecting device needs to be placed in each classroom and students would be made to swipe their finger over the sensor so as to mark their presence in the class. The database would contain all the fingerprints beforehand. So, the moment a finger would be swiped, a check......
