Monitoring students or employees in institutions or organizations, is animportant task. During working hours, students should notleave their campus unless they are allowed. It is a very tedious task to monitor the people. So here an idea to monitor the people is proposed using GPS and GPRS. The person who has to be monitored should wear an id card, which consist of GPS & GPRS integrated using ARM microcontroller. Now-a -days, wearing an identity card is a must for every organization, so the MEMS GPS and GPRS is used here. GPS position data is sent from the identity card, continuously to the server. Geo fences are created for people, which signify the location where they have to stay during working hours with respect to time. If the person stays in that position during particular time attendance will be marked, otherwise absent will be marked for the student, or leave may be marked for the employee. By knowing the position of the person, his location can be pointed in the google earth, proved that he carries his identity card. Since there is always a possibility of proxy attendance with this id card, a finger print device is used to avoid proxy attendance. When the person fingerprintmatches, then only his position data are considered valid and it is used.
