Problem Statement

How can we make taking attendance easier, faster, and more efficient in a classroom setting?

Current attendance taking methods are not efficient, some solutions have costs for students, and manual attendance can be distracting to students.

While there are many methods that professors use to take the class attendance, there is none that can take attendance without the interaction of both the professors and student in a way that doesn't disrupt the class.

Scanning range of 3-6 feet

Easy to read display from 5 feet, showing previous 5-10 scanned names
