Electric-field-coupled contactless ID sensor for cm-levelhigh-precision positioning item-level tagging systems
To detect multiple identifications (IDs) for cm-level high-precision positioning item-level tagging (ILT) systems in near-field ultra-high frequency RFID applications, an electric-field-coupled multiple ID sensor is presented. The proposed ID sensor consists of four circular electric coupling parts, an impedance-matching network, and an SP4T switch for position control. By switching the electric-field coupled sensing parts, cm-level position detection of densely aggregated RFID tags for a small-sized ILT can be achieved.
