Attendance management is an essential process for organizations, particularly in the education and corporate sectors. Conventional attendance management systems are prone to errors and inefficiencies. The recent advent of IoT and cloud computing technologies has revolutionized the way attendance is man- aged, leading to more accurate and efficient systems. In this research paper, we propose architecture for an attendance management system that utilizes IoT, AWS, and an RFID module with an Arduino Uno board. The proposed system aims to automate the attendance management process and eliminate the drawbacks of traditional systems. The proposed system has two main com- ponents: the hardware and the software. The hardware component includes an RFID module connected to an Arduino Uno board, which is used to cap- ture attendance data. The software component is built using Python Django and hosted on the AWS cloud, responsible for storing and processing the atten- dance data. The system provides real-time attendance tracking and reporting and can be accessed from anywhere using a web or mobile application. The proposed architecture was implemented and tested in a real-world scenario using an RFID-enabled tag or card for attendance, and the results show that it is more accurate and efficient than traditional attendance management sys- tems. The system provides a reliable and cost-effective solution for attendance management, which can be implemented in different organizations. The pro- posed system provides real-time attendance tracking and reporting accessible through a web or mobile application. The expected results of this proposed architecture are more accurate and efficient than traditional attendance man- agement systems, making it a cost-effective and reliable solution for attendance management in various organizations.
