    Hybrid UHF/UWB Antenna for Passive Indoor Identification and Localization Systems

    Export to Mendeley

    There is a growing interest for simultaneous identification and centimetre-resolution localization of multiple targets in indoor environments. A hybrid passive UHF/UWB RFID concept has been recently proposed that conciliates the potential from high resolution UWB impulse radio with the typical range from UHFRFID identification systems. This paper proposes a new planar antenna for hybrid passive tag systems, which operates both in the UHF-RFID band and in the FCC UWB band. The co-designed UHF andUWB antenna elements are printed back-to-back on each side of a common substrate with appropriate topology for future integrationwith a single UHF-UWBRFIDchip. Experimental tests have shown that both UHF-RFID and UWB performance of the hybrid antenna are comparable to available commercial solutions that work just on a single band. The antenna is adequate for lowcost mass production of hybrid passive tags. It aims at low-cost passive RFID systems combining the ability of item identification with precise tracking in indoor environments.

    Title : Hybrid UHF/UWB Antenna for Passive Indoor Identification and Localization Systems
    Author(s) : Catarina C. Cruz, Jorge R. Costa, Carlos A. Fernandes
    Abstract : There is a growing interest for simultaneous identification and centimetre-resolution localization of multiple targets in indoor environments. A hybrid passive UHF/UWB RFID concept has been recently proposed that conciliates the potential from high resolution UWB impulse radio with the typical range from UHFRFID identification systems. This paper proposes a new planar antenna for hybrid passive tag systems, which operates both in the UHF-RFID band and in the FCC UWB band. The co-designed UHF andUWB antenna elements are printed back-to-back on each side of a common substrate with appropriate topology for future integrationwith a single UHF-UWBRFIDchip. Experimental tests have shown that both UHF-RFID and UWB performance of the hybrid antenna are comparable to available commercial solutions that work just on a single band. The antenna is adequate for lowcost mass production of hybrid passive tags. It aims at low-cost passive RFID systems combining the ability of item identification with precise tracking in indoor environments.
