RFID Testbed Measures Multiple Tags at Once and Rapidly Assesses New Antenna Designs
May 5, 2008
Researchers have designed a system capable of simultaneously measuring hundreds of radio frequency identification tags and rapidly testing new RFID tag prototypes. This testbed allows researchers to measure the signal strength of tags hidden behind other tags, and to rapidly test unique antenna configurations and multiple antennas without actually constructing new tags for each experiment.
