An RFID-based Students Tracking Mobile Solution

Millions of students go to schools daily where the majority of them rely on public or private vehicles by means of transportation. The highly increased rate of child trafficking and kidnapping crimes throughout the globe and the amplification by media for the occurred cases have made parents to get worried about their children once they leave home toward their schools. Moreover, parents are likely to have extremely long duty hours and no time to pick up or drop off their children to/from their schools, and thus, they tend to send their children through different types of transportations. Therefore, parents need ways to monitor the safety of their children during their journey to/from schools. In fact, systems that track the arrival and leave of children are extremely helpful in notifying parents about the current status of their children. Accordingly, to address the aforementioned challenges, this paper presents an Android-based mobile solution, which uses the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology in order to track students’ journey to/from schoolsand thus notifies the parents about the status of their children. The Mobile solution reads the children’s RFID tags and automatically sends different generated messages to their parents,for example notifying the parents that their children have arrived to the school safely. The proposed solution has a set of capabilities, such as monitoring students at schools to check if they attended the school consistently andproviding parents with a full access to view the records of their children. Further, if any child is absent without an authorized leave, an automatic message is immediately sent to the parent. The findings revealed that the proposed application is easy to use, consumes less time compared to other similar systems, and reduces the efforts needed by parents to monitor their children.
