This book focuses on the development of chipless RFID tags, representing a new family of low cost tags. With this technology information is extracted from the electromagnetic response of the tag, which depends only on its geometry. Various solutions have been developed by the authors to increase the amount of information, reduce the surface of the tag, or improve the robustness of detection. Considerations such as realization using paper substrate, the development of a low cost detection system, and measurements in a real environment have been addressed for practical implementation.
- Introduces the chipless RFID REP approach as compared to classical chipless RFID, RFID, and barcode technologies- Includes a demonstration of the practical and economic potential of chipless RFID technology, with detailed presentations and discussions of different test benches and comparisons- Presents in detail numerous examples of chipless tags that are able to tackle specific problems: sensitivity of detection, encoding density, robustness of detection, problem of tag orientation, tags and reader cost, and compliance with emission standards- Focuses on the development of chipless RFID tags, representing a new family of low cost tags

Arnaud Vena is a lecturer at the University of Montpellier. Following industrial experience of more than 4 years between 2005-2009 at ACS Solution France, in the design of RFID readers in HF band, Arnaud Vena completed a thesisat the laboratory-INP Grenoble LCIS in Valencia to study RFID without chip. Between 2012-2013, he made a postdoctoral stay at TUT University in Finland, where he continued his research in the field of RFID sensors made by inkjet printing. In 2013, he joined the IES lab at the University of Montpellier, to reinforce the theme "RFID sensor". The same year, he won the thesis prize from the University of Grenoble for his contribution on chipless RFID technologies. In 2014, Arnaud Vena was elected "Early Career Representative" of the commission D "Electronics and Photonics" of the International Scientific Radio Union (URSI). Vena Arnaud is author of over 50 scientific papers and 3 patents.
