I’m Jamie Munford and I am a 3rd year Computing student. For this project I will be assisting in the design and development of the NFC reader, my main responsibility being the software that will be going into the reader. I am suitable for the role of hardware developer as I have had some previous experience working with hardware components in my first year, which I worked with a team to develop a microcontroller car to compete in the Renesas car rally in Nuremburg.
The aim of this project is to create a student organisation system to assist students in effectively managing their time. The project uses a mobile application as an interface for students to view records, upcoming events, tasks and notifications. The project also intends to replace traditional paper registers, using a Raspberry Pi integrated with an NFC reader and student cards for recording lecture attendance to a MySQL database.
