RFID Systems

RFID is a very popular and widespread technology that is useful for many applications such as inventory control, asset tracking, and general localization, particularly due to its low cost. However, there is always a need for smaller tags and reader antennas. The group is pursuing novel methods to miniaturize antennas while still maintaining necessary performance for RFID operations. New applications and usecases for RFID systems are also heavily investigated and tested. Of particular interest is cost-effective localization utilizing passive RFID tags when other means are not available.
