The?first book to combine the two most important wireless technologiesThis is a single, comprehensive, timely reference on the smart antenna technologies applied to radio frequency identification (RFID). Smart antennas provide outstanding capacity improvement to the radio communication systems for RFID, an automatic identification method that uses devices called RFID tags (transponders). Featuring chapters by leading experts in both academia and industry, it explains the recent development of smart antennas for the RFID system, both in the physical layer development and the software algorithms and protocols, and covers the latest achievements in design and application.The beginning chapters provide a comprehensive overview of RFID and smart antennas, offering an in-depth description of terminologies and concepts. The work presented thereafter focuses on these seven main categories:RFID reader architectureSmart antenna physical layer developmentRFID position location using electronically steerable parasitic array radiator (ESPAR)RFID multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antenna systemMulti-antenna RFID tagsAnti-collision and throughput improvementUltra wideband (UWB) RFID direction of arrival (DOA) estimationTopics discussed include signal processing algorithms, hardware architectures, adaptive beamforming for RFID smart antennas, multiuser interference suppression in RFID tag reading, phased array antennas for RFID applications, and smart antennas in wireless systems. Also featured are market analysis and case studies of RFID smart antennas.This groundbreaking reference on smart antennas for RFID is intended for undergraduates and postgraduates studying/researching RFID and smart antenna wireless communication systems. It is also useful for industrial designers of RFID systems, as well as researchers and engineers working on RFID systems and smart antennas for wireless communications systems.
