Abstract: Bluetooth 4.0 named Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) has low-powered Bluetooth devices. Bluetooth is one of the most widely used wireless technology including large number of mobile phones and other portable devices. This technology is used with IoT (Internet of Things) gives us multiple options for various applications, one of which is education and, attendance system is integral part of education system. The conventional attendance system has so many difficulties. In ‘BLE Based Attendance System’ project, when students walk into classroom with turned on Bluetooth and enter into classroom, attendance is directly registered on system automatically. This can be achieved as; when teacher enters in classroom they turn on PSoC to take attendance. The board will scan for available BLE devices in the classroom through registered UUIDs (unique addresses provided to every Bluetooth device) of students phones to their specific names/roll no. In this whole scenario students will have to just turn on the Bluetooth on their phone. After this process the attendance will be uploaded on network host (PC, Server, etc.) for further use. The system will give us output in a log which can be further utilized for calculating total attendance, defaulters, etc. So overall this system provides a secure and user friendly approach to a time consuming system
