RFID as Sensors

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips are used in countless applications, such as wirelessly readable product labels, product tracking or animal identification. At DISS this technology is used to wirelessly connect sensors for measurement of various physical properties. However, a purely passive power supply and the desired communication range can only be achieved if all components of the system are taken into account and designed accordingly for the specific application requirements.

„Chipless RFIDs made of textile materials are ideal for wearables.“

Current work deals with system integration, the usage of (conductive) textile materials as sensors and methods for position determination of RFID transponders based on Surface Acoustic Wave Devices (SAWs). Especially textile materials are suitable to design highly flexible sensors, which open up new application fields, for example in the field of wearables.
