A novel hybrid battery-less tag design using ambient solar and proposed RF power is presented. The novelty of this system is that the RFID tag not only uses ambient RF/solar power to power itself, but also it uses it as triggering mechanism for initiating data communication. A remote localization system with very good accuracy utilizing this tag configuration and making use of RFID to Wireless Sensor Node communication is showcased as an end application with tremendous potential.
