    The design of electrically large loop-type antennas for ultra-high frequency (UHF) near-field radio frequency identification (RFID) readers is a challenge due to the inherent limitation of loop type antennas. This paper reviews the development of the zero-phase-shift-line (ZPSL) loop antennas for UHF near-field RFID systems. First, the state-of-the-art ZPSL loop antennas are briefed and then the m...

    In this paper, it is investigated the possibility of using near field communication (NFC), normally applied for communicating two proximity devices, to power-up external circuitry, such as low power wireless sensors, or energy scavenging devices. For this purpose, the possibility of combining both features in a single system, able to communicate with neighboring devices via NFC and to transfer pow... View full abstract»

  • Effect of Material Properties on a Subdermal UHF RFID Antenna

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):260 - 266

    This paper explores a subdermal RFID antenna at 918 MHz. The antenna, made from ink encapsulated in thin sheets of biocompatible PET, is designed to be implanted in the fat layer just below the skin, with the muscle acting as a lossy ground plane. The antenna is a patch that uses a T-slot for matching. Three materials are tested: 1) aluminum tape; 2) ELCOAT ink; and 3) inkjet printing. The effect ... View full abstract»

    Our research hypothesis is that we could improve traditional supply chain management (SCM) health by designing a new integrated manufacturing enterprise system based on parking and forwarding algorithms, radio frequency identification (RFID) feedback and a Markov decision process. The goal of our research was to optimize a cost function that depends on RFID system viscosity. The viscosity of the R... View full abstract»

    This paper investigates meteorological factors that affect the phase of radio-frequency identification (RFID) passive tags at 868 MHz, in outdoor conditions. The study identifies the effect of water on the tag and base antennas, the effect of temperature on the cables, tags, and base antenna, the effect of the tag support moisture, and the effect of atmospheric conditions on wave velocity. Combine... View full abstract»

    Tag-copter is an architecture of dynamic and self-relocating sensor devices originating from the synergy between sensor-oriented radiofrequency identification (RFID) and the emerging micro air vehicles technology. Tag-copters integrate a low-cost nano multi-copter with a miniaturized RFID data-logger antenna for the ubiquitous and cooperative monitoring of indoor volumes as well as of harsh enviro...
