"We found that instead of using one reader there should always be 2 readers at the gate to get 100% efficacy. We also found that Main application system on local environment was erratic in the absence of trained IT person in school . In such cases We ought to have recommended usage of NFC (Minimum hardware based product) instead of UHF. Capturing and collection of student's data was a huge challenge for the school and before project commencement all student data, cards printing and mapping the cards ought to be completed prior to any commissioning work. This whole excercise could take 3 to 4 weeks and must be guided through a process oriented protocol. We also found that schools often insist on buying their own hardware ( NFC devices) themselves but it is better they procure through the vendor who can pre-check the compatibilty of the devices with the app, ultimately saving time and energy"
The “Assistance Control” project was inspired by the basic idea of the “Bologna Process”, a Pan-European collaboration which started in 1999, to adapt technology to provide a better quality of education that would allow improvement of the next generation of classroom teaching.
The best project finally chosen and tested involved students registered for classes with NFC phones, during the academic year 2011–2012 at “Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca, Campus Madrid” (UPSAM).
This resulted in the senior students at the School of Computer Engineering to certify 99.5% accuracy and ease of attendance that ensured continuous assessment without loss of instructional time allocated to this activity.
