An automatic way to register attendance?

How do you register attendance for courses with 50+ students where it would be too time consuming for the teacher to do it through the Attendance tool in Canvas?
I was thinking about finding a way to save student card bardcodes as a part of the students account in Canvas and allow students to scan their cards when they come to course so that attendance is registered this way.

Anyone with a solution here or should I submit this card scan as an idea and hopefully get some help with the implementation?
