Abstract

This paper discusses the evolution towards integrated RFID-enabled wireless sensor network infrastructure using UHF and microwave frequencies. Inkjet-printed technology on flexible paper substrates and the integration (assembly) of sensors, wireless modules, discrete components and power sources is proposed as a solution for low-cost, light-weight, and environmental friendly method for RFID-enabled sensors and Wireless Sensor Nodes (WSN). Three examples are given to demonstrate the usability of such method: UHF RFID-enabled temperature sensor, Zigbee wireless module for location finding and sensing applications, and finally an RF- Certificate of Authenticity (RF-COA) for anti-counterfeiting applications.
