Covid-19 pandemic has presently made it unsafe to use contact based biometric verification. An AI based Attendance Application (AINA) is developed, which allows non-contact based personnel verification using facial features of the person
Existing CCTV cameras can be utilized for capturing facial images
Facial features of several thousands of employees can be stored in the computer since for each employee the facial features are encoded in a small (less than 25 KB) file
The system is scalable since the time for identification and verification for each person remains constant even as the number of registered personnel increase
It is secure because
It works as a standalone system and does not require internet
Since only the facial features are saved in encoded form, the actual face images need not be saved, thereby ensuring privacy and security.
Server for storing facial feature database is placed within organisation premises.
AINA can be deployed with minimal upgradation to the legacy attendance infrastructure with RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) readers
AINA has a light-weight installation process. AINA can be installed on a normal desktop computer with a GPU based display adapter
AINA comes with a very intuitive and user-friendly GUI
