Sensor-Oriented Passive RFID
This chapter addresses the design of new UHF tag antennas for sensing applications able to host detectors and additional electronics but also to act as passive sensor itself for some modification of the target. Starting from the consideration that the tag is both a digital and an analog device, sensing data may be achieved without using microcontrollers by a simple signal processing of the tag response and of the turn-on power. The chapter is particularly focused on the monitoring of human body features even if the proposed ideas and devices, here demonstrated by simulations and experimentation, may also be applied in a variety of scenarios.
