A robust technique for reading moving chipless tags exploiting the inverse synthetic aperture radar data processing is presented. The procedure takes advantage from the known tag movement to improve the tag detection capability by integrating several received signals. The implicit advantage of the proposed detection scheme is that the background measurement, collected in the absence of the tag, can be easily performed before the tag passes in front of the reader antenna. The reading procedure allows for a significant increase of the interrogation distance and, more importantly, it greatly improves the detection probability in complex scenarios, where the tag is attached on arbitrary and highly scattering objects. A simplified model is used to demonstrate the capabilities of the presented procedure in detecting tags even in the presence of high clutter. Detection of tags with signal-to-noise ratio as low as -10 dB is experimentally demonstrated.

Abstract

A robust technique for reading moving chipless tags exploiting the inverse synthetic aperture radar data processing is presented. The procedure takes advantage from the known tag movement to improve the tag detection capability by integrating several received signals. The implicit advantage of the proposed detection scheme is that the background measurement, collected in the absence of the tag, can be easily performed before the tag passes in front of the reader antenna. The reading procedure allows for a significant increase of the interrogation distance and, more importantly, it greatly improves the detection probability in complex scenarios, where the tag is attached on arbitrary and highly scattering objects. A simplified model is used to demonstrate the capabilities of the presented procedure in detecting tags even in the presence of high clutter. Detection of tags with signal-to-noise ratio as low as -10 dB is experimentally demonstrated.
