Abstract -
To answer the cravings of parents or guardians quest for update on their children or ward's class attendance activities, the fingerprintbased electronic attendance registration system was developed with Microsoft’s C# on the .NET framework and Microsoft’s Structured Query Language (SQL) Server 2005 as the backend. The technology consists of two processes namely; enrolment and authentication. During enrolment, the fingerprint of the user is captured and its unique features extracted and stored in a database along with the users identity as a template for the subject. The unique features called minutiae points were extracted using the Crossing Number (CN) method which extracts the ridge endings and bifurcations from the skeleton image by examining the local neighbourhoods of each ridge pixel using a 3 x 3 window. During authentication, the fingerprint of the user is captured again and the extracted features compared with the template in the database to determine a match before attendance is made after which an e-mail will be sent to the parent or guardian.
