We establish a passive UHF RFID tag as a sensor with a referenced readout to compression. We introduce the sensor tag design, which is based on a two-part split ring resonator antenna, and present the compression sensor platform with a reference tag. We analyze the achieved wireless measurement results and evaluate the performance of the compression sensing platform. Based on these initial measurements, passive RFID-based sensors could provide a maintenance-free wirelessly readable option for compression sensing, for example for structural health monitoring.
