Measurement and modeling of a UHF-RFID system in a metallic closed vehicle

Abstract

In this work, the characteristics radiopropagation of a wireless system within an indoor vehicle is presented. An analysis of the physical radio channel propagation inside a van full of dielectric buckets is presented based on three-dimensional ray launching in house code. Simulation as well as measurement results from a real in-vehicle scenario confirm the topological dependence and impact on a RFID system is shown. Copyright © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
