Abu Dhabi and Dubai constitute 67% of the UAE’s school population. According to Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), Dubai and Abu Dhabi together are opening twenty new schools with a capacity to fit in 34,500 students.

The Ministry of Education (MoE) lists monitoring school attendance as a top priority, and necessary to ensuring the students’ safety and right to a quality education.

With the large number of students in the schools, emergency situations that occur during school hours require instant tracking of data for reference, which digital technology cannot always provide.

However, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) provides instant tracking of real time data.

How does RFID work?

The RFID system is composed of a RFID reader which receives and generates the signal of a RFID tag or antenna, which can be attached to any file, asset or person.

RFID tags, whether passive or active, send out a signal to the RFID reader, pinpointing the tagged objects’ location in real time, thus providing visibility and management.

The Indoor Positioning System (IPS)

The IPS is a RFID based technology that traces the location of students or objects indoors through commonly used features like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, increasing the sources’ accessibility.

Since GPS signals of sources are weak indoors, IPS can help provide accurate, real time data on the sources’ locations.

IPS RFID in schools

RFID based IPS, monitors attendance and provides information on:

  • Student location in or out of the school with real time location.
  • Presence of the Teacher in the classroom.
  • School bus pickup and drop-off points.
  • Scanning of all classrooms for assets or students after school, etc.
