The device (11) is arranged to biometrically verify the identify of a user from user records on the database (19) and to generate an event record containing the identity of a verified user, the time at which the verification occurred and the global position where the verification occurred. The event records can be downloaded onto a remote database (13) for analysis and storage. User records can also be downloaded onto the remote database (13) or uploaded.

Description

Biometric Attendance Verification

This invention relates to a system method for verifying that a particular individual is present at a particular location at a particular time.

It is often desirable to be able to verify that a particular individual is present at a particular location at a particular time. An example of such an instance is in the construction industry where workers work at a remote location and the identity of the worker, as well as their arrival and departure time needs to be recorded.

EP1 158467 discloses a biometric attendance system comprising a portable device (such as a personal digital assistant (PDA), laptop computer or a mobile phone) provided with a biometric sensor arranged to monitor a person's voice, fingerprint, face, iris or other unique personal characteristic and to compare the monitored biometric information with previously stored biometric data contained in a smart card or the like.

In use, a person inserts their smart card into the portable device, whereupon the stored biometric data is compared with actual biometric data obtained from the sensor, such that the identity of the person can be verified by the device. The identity of the person is then stored along with the time at which the verification occurred. This process can then be repeated for multiple persons, each having their own smart card. The stored data can then be downloaded to a central computer for analysis.

A disadvantage of the above-mentioned system is that each user needs to be in possession of a smart card containing biometric data. It will be appreciated that such smart cards are costly to provide. Furthermore, there is a risk that a person may lose, forget or damage their smart card with the result that they will not be able to register on the system using biometric recognition.

The construction industry typically employs many casual workers who arrive for work at a remote location and never actually visit an office of their employer. Thus, another disadvantage of the above-mentioned system is the portable device will either need to be provided with an expensive device for issuing biometric smart cards or the new worker will need to visit a main office of the employer which is both inconvenient and time consuming. Another disadvantage of the above-mentioned system is that it is not possible to accurately verify the location at which the verification took place. Thus, it is possible for workers in possession of a portable device at a remote location to fraudulently verify themselves whilst they are at home or in another location apart from that where they are supposed to be.

We have now devised a system and method which alleviates the above-mentioned problems.

In accordance with the present invention, there is provided a biometric verification system comprising a first processor device having a first computer database, and at least one portable second processor device for selectively connecting to said first device, the second device comprising a GPS receiver, a biometric sensor and a second database containing or arranged to contain a plurality of user records including biometric data of each user, the or each second device being arranged to biometrically verify the identify of a user from said records on said second database and to generate an event record containing the identity of a verified user, the time at which the verification occurred and the global position where the verification occurred.

In use, because the user records are stored on a local database on the second processor device, a need for each user to have their own smart card is avoided. The provision of a GPS receiver also enables the position at which the verification occurred to be recorded.

The event record of respective users can then be downloaded to the first processor device (located at a main office or the like) at an appropriate time. This can be by an suitable means, such as by physically connecting the first processor device to the second processor device (when the latter is brought back to the main office), via a data or telephone line, via the internet or other computer network, via an optical or acoustical link, or via a radio link such as GPRS, wi-fi, Bluetooth, SMS or GSM cellular telephone. The data may be transmitted in XML format. In the case of a radio link, the second processor device may be arranged to monitor the signal strength of the radio link and to transmit the stored attendance data once a suitably strong signal is detected, this is particularly advantageous if the users are working in remote areas where there is little or no signal.

Preferably the or each second processor device is arranged to derive the time from a time signal output by the GPS receiver.

Preferably the or each second processor device comprises means for creating said user records on the second database, so that the biometric details of new users can be captured without them having to visit the main office.

Preferably the or each second processor device is arranged to download new user records to said first processor device using any of the above-mentioned data transfer methods.

Preferably the first data base contains or is arranged to contain a plurality of user records so that a central data base of all users is kept.

Preferably the first processor device is arranged to upload selected user records to a said second processor device. In this manner, the second processor can be configured to contain the user records of selected persons who are known to be working at the location of the second processor device at that time. The uploading of said user records to said second processor device may be carried out using any of the above-mentioned data transfer methods.

Preferably the or each second processor device comprises a camera arranged to photograph users who are attempting to verify themselves, so that further verification can be performed. The captured image may be stored in the event record on said second processor device. This also provides a back up form of verification in the event that the biometric recognition failed.

Alternatively or additionally, the camera may be arranged to photograph the scene of a particular location, so that verification can be obtained of the user's location or the state of progress of any work which is being carried out. The second processor device may be arranged to require such images to be periodically captured at one or more times throughout the day. Also in accordance with the present invention there is provided a method of verifying a user comprising:

providing at least one remote processing device having a GPS receiver, a biometric sensor and a database containing a plurality of user records each including biometric data of different users;

monitoring a user's biometric details using a said sensor and comparing the monitored data with said user records to verify the identity of the user;

generating an event record in said database containing details of said biometric verification together with the time and location which the verification occurred; and

transmitting the or each even record to a remote database.

Preferably the user records are uploaded from said remote database to the database on the remote device prior to said monitoring step.

The user records may also be created on said remote device by monitoring the biometric details of a new user using said sensor and inputting other information such as the user's name.

An embodiment of the present invention will now be described by way of an example only and with reference to the accompanying drawings in which;

Figure 1 is a schematic view of a biometric employee attendance verification system in accordance with the present invention; and

Figure 2 is a schematic view of a remote device of the system of Figure 1.

Referring to Figure 1 of the drawings, there is shown a biometric employee attendance verification system comprising a central computer 10 located at the employer's central office and a plurality remote devices 11 , which can be used in any location remote from the central office and are selectively connectable to the central computer 10 via a communications network 12. The central computer 10 comprises a database 13 and web servers 14, 15 for respectively receiving and sending data over the network 12.

Referring to Figure 2 of the drawings, each remote device 11 comprises a personal digital assistant (PDA) having a GPS receiver 16, biometric sensor 17, a camera 18, a local database 19 and a touch screen data input device 20. The biometric sensor is preferably a finger print sensor. The device 1 1 further comprises a GSM/GPRS transceiver 21 for wireless communication with the communication network 12.

The database 13 on the central computer 10 holds a plurality of employee records, each containing at least the identification number, the name and biometric data of respective employees. The user records can be uploaded from the database 13 onto selected remote devices 11 via the network 12 or via a direct link when the devices 1 1 are returned to the central office. The uploading of relevant employee records may be performed by requesting the required employee records from the remote device 11.

When employees arrive for work at a remote location, they are required to verify themselves biometrically by placing their finger on the biometric sensor 17 of the device 11. The captured biometric information is then compared with each employee record stored on the local database 19, in order to determine whether there is a match. Alternatively, each employee maybe required to input their identification number prior to biometric information, so that their record is called up: the device 11 then compares the stored biometric data with that obtained from the sensor 17. The device 11 may also capture a photograph of the employee via the camera 18 as a backup in case the biometric recognition failed. The global position and time at which the verification occurred is then obtained from the GPRS receiver 16. The data obtained at each verification is captured and stored in the local database 19 as an events record. Each event record comprises the date/time, the identification number of the employee and whether the biometric verification passed or failed. The record may also contain any digital image captured by the camera 18. Each event record is then downloaded onto the database 13 of the central computer 10 via the network 12. If the network 12 is not available, the device is configured to provide an option to allow records to be downloaded at a later time either manually or when the network is available. The central computer 13 is able to process all of the downloaded event records to produce a log for attendance and payroll purposes.

If the employee record of an employee is not on the local database 19, then the record maybe downloaded on request from the database 13 on the central computer 10. If the employee is new and does not have an employee record, then a new record can be created on the device 1 1 by capturing their finger print using the sensor 17 and by entering their personal information using the touch screen input device 20. Their photograph may also be captured. The created employee record can then be downloaded to the central database 13 for storage and subsequent retrieval.

The or each device 11 may also be configured to require one or more photographs to be taken throughout the day, in order that the progress of the work being undertaken by the or each employee can be monitored.

A biometric verification system in accordance with the present invention is relatively simple and inexpensive to implement, yet enables accurate and reliable verification to be performed. It will be appreciated that whilst the present invention as been described with reference to a system for verifying the attendance of employees, the system could be used in a wide number of other applications, such as to verify the delivery of goods by a person to another person at a certain address.
