RFID Tag Analysis and Trade Studies
Project Award Date: 06-29-2005
This project will focus on the discovery and operational testing of small RFID tags to determine their availability and compare their operational capabilities. ITTC researchers will conduct market research to determine the availability of small passive and semi-active RFID tags and to evaluate their operational performance characteristics. A report shall be generated to describe the physical properties of the tags, where they may be purchased, how much they cost (in small quantities), identify the pros and cons of each tag type, and document the performance characteristics of tags/antennas when in free space or mounted on various materials.
