Towards pervasive soil moisture sensing using RFID tag antenna-based sensors

Abstract

An RFID-based passive sensor for pervasive soil moisture monitoring is proposed. Variations in moisture cause a change in soil permittivity which in turn affects the impedance match/mismatch between the tag chip and the sensor probe. This manifests itself as a change in the RFID tag backscatter signal strength which can be detected at the reader. The… (More)
