We were tired of the having to sit through roll call during every class and thought that we could improve the process of checking attendance.
What it does
Scans a student's QR Code and adds the info to a spreadsheet.
How we built it
Connected a USB webcam to a Raspberry Pi and then intergrated Google's Spreadsheet Api
Challenges we ran into
Writing the python code that would ultimately capture the QR Code information and write it to our spreadsheet.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Before we started this project we didn't have much knowledge about Python and now we have a better understanding of the language.
What we learned
We learned how to program a QR Code reader, write programs in Python and how to bring different platforms together.
