The g Attendance capture for large populations still remains a challenge for organizations such as Schools, Universities and Event organizers. This is due to the fact that the attendance capture process is sequential requiring individual identification and autentification process. This process usually takes up a lot of time and generates a lot of inconvenience for the attendees. This process is also subject to manipulations as the most common identification model involves the use of ID cards embedded with either RFIDs or identification methods to tie the user to the card. These cards can be given to third parties for the purpose of taking the attendance. This paper presents the development of a Bluetooth based system and a local identification system for the development of a contactless identification capture system for large halls. The system identifies the user using his fingerprint. When the identification is completed, the data is transmitted to a central data base using the Bluetooth transmission technology. This system will enable a contactless capturing of the attendance in large halls resulting in a system with a very high security level and no inconvenience for the attendees.
