Abstract: In the existing system, we have finger print authenticated locking system but we donít have a system where a room can be accessed remotely. Unlike the use of other forms of authentication, such as passwords or tokens, biometric recognition provides a strong link between an individual and a claimed identity. The CAN based system for Locking/Unlocking of Labs as CAN supports number of nodes. Each Lab can be treated as Individual Locking Unit. The Lab in charge of Finger print is stored as the database in Finger print sensor which acts as the central node present at a central place. When the Central Node reads the Finger print, it checks for authenticity. If it finds it is authenticated then the information will be sent to respective node through CAN bus, to open the respective Lab.
