Special Session: Chipless RFID Future and Challenges

RF-Barcode of the future:This workshop aims to construct a solid platform for interactive discussions between the researchers from RF, signal processing, communication and networking societies for sharing their objectives, challenges, experiences and future solutions for chipless RFID systems.

The requirements of the multi-tag scenario for chipless RFID systems illustrated in Fig. 1would be proposed. Furthermore, the printability, nonlinearity and sufficient coding capacity of the tag will be introduced as optimum solutions to dethrone the barcode

A. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Mohamed El-Hadidy received his PhD degree in June 2009 at the Institute of Communication Technology (IKT), Leibniz University of Hannover, Germany. He lead several research projects as a postdoc for two years and co-supervising PhD students in the fields of UWB-MIMO and Cognitive Radios communication Systems. Since July 2011, he has been with the Institute of Digital Signal Processing, University of Duisburg-Essen as the Leader of the Research Group Simulation and Measurements. His present research topics are mainly focused on UWB-MIMO wireless communications, Channel Modeling, Interference Alignment, Cognitive Radios and Test-beds Implementations. Dr. El-Hadidy is the founder of the IEEE Middle East Conference on Antennas and Propagation (MECAP) and the general secretary (G.S.) of the Middle East Organization on Microwave, Antennas and Propagation (MEOMAP). He is a reviewer in several IEEE transactions and magazines. Mohamed has more than 5 years professional experience as a representative and he is the representative of CST in the Middle East area.

from item level labelling. Increasing the reading range using enhanced UWB, high gain, pencil beam and steering reader antenna will be illustrated.

This workshop will introduce a novel collision avoidance protocol

for the chipless RFID systems. The protocol will be presented as the first Medium Access Control (MAC) algorithm for handling the multi-tag identification scenario of the frequency signature based chipless RFID tags.

Novel techniques for chipless RFID multi-tag detection and identification, enhancing the system latency and increasing encoding capacity would be introduced. The channel and environmental effects on the chipless RFID tag detection will be deeply discussed. Smart channel estimation and equalization algorithms in dense multipath propagation scenarios will be presented.
