Analysis of an UHF-RFID system in a metallic closed vehicle

Abstract

A ray-tracing technique to predict the propagation channel parameters in indoor scenarios is presented. An analysis of the physical radio channel propagation inside a van full of buckets is presented. The propagation model is a deterministic technique, based on 3D ray launching. The results show the dependence of the scenario in the performance of the system, revealing that the consideration of the topology of the wireless system prior to deployment leads to an optimal final configuration. © 2012 IEEE.
