Abstract

Today, kidnapping cases in Nigeria is on the daily increase and children in nursery and primary schools are not left out. These innocent children are lured with precious items and food items and kidnapped even from school premises. To curb this act of kidnapping in schools, security men are employed to watch the gates but they cannot always determine the guardian-ward relationship of all pupils easily. It is believed that this can be curbed if the guardian-ward relationship can be determined easily and the location of all pupils can also be known per time. Today, there exist various means by which the locations of people, animal or items can be tracked real time, some of which were explored including Global positioning system (GPS), mobile phone tracking etc. but all come with their limitation especially cost of implementation. This work thus proposes a cost-effective location-aware system design integrating Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), which is able to determine the location of pupils per time within the school premises, and also map and determine guardian-ward relationship.
