An Automated Attendance System in Academia with Implicit Authentication via Mobile Devices and Wi-Fi Connection

Billy Susanto Panca, Yansen Paulus, Oscar Karnalim


Many automated attendance systems have been proposed in academia. However, all of them require the attendees to consciously record their attendance. This is prone to human error as some attendees may forget to do that. It is also distractive as the recording process should be remembered by the attendees, in addition to focusing on their main responsibilities. This paper proposes an automated attendance system with implicit authentication, based on the connection between the attendees' mobile devices and the Wi-Fi network. Our evaluation shows that this system is almost 100\% accurate in recording staff attendance. It is applicable due to many factors. For example, many attendees often bring their mobile devices and connect the devices to the Wi-Fi.
