Increasing the coding capacity of chipless RFID tags is a key factor while considering the development of miniaturized tags. A novel hybrid coding technique by combining phase deviation and frequency position encoding is proposed here. A coding capacity of 22.9 bits is obtained simply with five resonators within a reduced dimension of 2 cm × 4 cm.(More)
Parameter estimation of time-varying non-Gaussian autoregressive processes can be a highly nonlinear problem. The problem gets even more difficult if the functional form of the time variation of the process parameters is unknown. In this paper, we address parameter estimation of such processes by particle filtering, where posterior densities are(More)
A group-delay engineered noncommensurate transmission line two-port all-pass network for analog signal-processing applications is presented, analytically modeled, and experimentally demonstrated. This network consists of transversally cascaded C-sections, which are distributed implementations of the bridged-T equalizer lumped circuit. It is obtained by(More)
This paper presents a new radio frequency identification (RFID) chipless tag that is highly compact and potentially low-cost. This tag has a lot of advantages, such as being fully printable on products since no ground plane is needed for fabrication. The actual issue of the chipless tag family having a single layer, that is, their detuning effect, is(More)
A new chipless RF identification (RFID) tag design is presented in this paper to ease the detection of items in a real environment. For this purpose, we present multiple scatterers able to depolarize the incident wave to create a response in the orthogonal polarization. Measurements in anechoic chamber and in a real environment, when the tags are positioned(More)
The paper presents the design and development of a low cost chipless RFID system for secure near field data transfer. This system is ideal for use in credit cards and similar identification cards which are based on "data transfer by contact" which at present uses the conventional using integrated circuits (IC) or magnetic strips. The system(More)
| This paper is mainly dedicated to the design of radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags, particularly the antennas that allow the tag to be fed, communicate, and exchange data with the reader. Good performance tags require optimized antenna that take into account numerous constraints as well as the environment of the application under consideration.(More)
This paper proposes for the first time, a group delay based humidity sensor for chipless RFID applications. The sensor network consists of cascaded group of microstrip transmission line sections coupled at alternative ends. Silicon nanowires are deposited on the transmission line sections. The nanowires are extremely sensitive to humidity variations, which(More)
Radio-Frequency IDentification (RFID) is an enabling and emergent technology. Nowadays it still remains several challenging research issues before its widespread implementation, especially in dense environment. One of the main problems that limits the efficiency of passive UHF RFID system is the collision between tags. Current solutions are based on(More)
This paper presents a chipless radio frequency identification (RFID) sensor tag having both identification and sensing capabilities. It is based on one resonant scatterer operating as a signal processing antenna in the 3-7.5 GHz band. The scatterer is used to monitor a physical parameter variation, as well as to identify the remote sensor. To make a(More)
