Augmented RFID technologies for the internet of things and beyond

Luciano Tarricone, Jasmin Grosinger

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialResearch


Radio frequency identification (RFID) is one of the crucial enabling technologies for the Internet of Things (IoT). This is leading to a continuous augmentation of RFID technologies, in terms of sensing capabilities, energetic autonomy, usability, and cost affordability, and this special issue proposes an overview on such a challenging scenario. The proposed results, in terms of cost reduction, miniaturization, and compatibility with complex systems and technologies, as well as the identification of the relevant criticalities, also pave the way to future steps being taken that go beyond the current IoT.
