Tiivistelmä

This study presents the potentials of 3D printing in the utilization of passive RFID components on a cotton substrate. New types of 3D-printable conductive materials, graphene ink and stretchable silver conductor, are used in antenna fabrication. Our measurement results confirm that both types of wireless components reach high performance: the achievable read ranges of the graphene and stretchable tags are close to 5 and 11 meters, respectively. These results are well comparable to those of previously reported silver and copper textile RFID tags.
