Applications (IJRFITA)

Publisher: Inderscience

The International Journal of Radio Frequency Identification Technology and
Applications (IJRFITA) provides the primary forum to report and address the
fundamental engineering and physical issues of RFID tag operation and
tag/reader communication. The tag technologies will include backscatter,
chip-less RFID and other alternatives to the classical chip and antenna

The perspective is one of the hardware physical and mathematical foundations
as opposed to enterprise software communicating with readers and the
commercial product numbering systems.

The primary objective of IJRFITA is to establish a sound scientific basis
for the wireless communication and powering of low cost identification and
sensing elements that are attached to or embedded in products and items. The
reported basic knowledge will provide a sound platform for the advancement
of RFID technology to provide the predictability necessary to meet research
and industry needs for this technology that connects to the fundamental
things of this world.

Another objective is to provide the forum for developing the testing
procedures for the multiple application scenarios as RFID deployment reaches

Suitable topics may include (but are not limited to):

* Remote powering issues with passive RFID tags
* Optimisation of communication protocols for minimising power consumption
* Antenna design and analysis for specific types of RFID tags
* Low cost tag manufacturing techniques
* Test procedures for standardised performance evaluation
* The advantages of both single and multiple frequency protocols including
ultra wide band for identification and sensing
* Early identification of potential areas for standardisation
