Studies of indoor wave propagation and antenna diversity in UHF RFID systems

Analytical and experimental investigations considering indoor wave propagation and antenna diversity are presented for passive UHF RFID systems. Modelling results are reported for two-ray and three-ray reflection models, with the effect of floor and ceiling relative permittivity discussed. A novel multi-LOS multi-ray reflection model, considering transmit antenna diversity, is proposed with good results reported. From experiments, a receive diversity scheme shown the best performance in comparison with transmit diversity and no diversity cases. A promising performance improvement in the tag readability is also demonstrated (without antenna diversity) by simply placing an aluminium plate on the floor nearby a commercial tag.
