RFID Technology and Applications

Call for Papers

RFID is emerging as one of most fundamental technologies to Internet of Things due to its attractive features such as good reading ranges, high data rates, and low cost. RFID has achieved a widespread success in various applications, ranging from asset tracking, highway toll collection, supply chain management, animal identification to surveillance systems. Moreover, there has been a wide scope of development in RFID standards, protocols, and middleware. However, a series of challenging issues should be properly addressed before a massive adaptation of RFID technology.

This special issue will focus on the research and technical innovations in RFID readers, tags, applications, and systems. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • RFID near-field reader antenna
  • Compact RFID reader antenna
  • Broadband RFID reader antenna
  • RFID tag antenna
  • System on a chip
  • Mobile and handheld readers
  • Intelligent tags
  • Tag storage and communication
  • Measurement techniques for RFID
  • Special applications of RFID
  • RFID system planning
  • RFID wireless channel modeling
