Two finalists at Islamic University in Uganda (IUIU) main campus Mbale have designed an electronic radio frequency identification base door lock access control system.
The duo are Habiba Saleh sharif and Namakali Paul pursuing Bachelor’s in Information Technology.
In an interview with Saleh, one of the innovators ,said the electronic radio frequency identification base access control door lock system will need a key card that will be limited to only authorized users to open.
‘’We were motivated to design this kind of door lock access control system that needs a key card because most crucial offices in our university don’t have such a system that we limit access to only authorized users who have been stored in the data base and admin will be able to monitor and access the daily entrances of each and every person who has accessed the building,’’ she said.
IUIU administration has expressed interest in the project and intend to adopt, patent and scale up the project which will help to improve security at the University.
