The incorporation of barcodes in our day live has made easy the manipulation of long numbers. Avoiding in big measure the human’s errors caused by transcribing the number impressed in a paper to a computer using a manual touchpad. This has been accomplished using scanner readers. The scanner reader is able to transfer a number faster and more efficient than any person could do. These good qualities together with the facility of use of scanner readers has done that barcodes have been use in a huge range of sectors. From small offices to big corporations that need to do a tracking of its products. The idea of this project is to use this technology in the academic field. The objectives are design and develop a student register. This can be achieved through the use of two elements. A unique and personal identifier for the student and a device able to read this identifier. The student will be identified through the barcode located in his student card. The device able to read this information will be a scanner reader barcode. The scanner reader model is a portable one, working with batteries and able to save up to 500 barcodes approximately* (depending the type of barcode read). It also has USB cable to transfer the data.
