Passive ultra-high frequency (UHF) RFID systems are conventionally assumed to be downlink limited due to the relatively high power consumption of a tag’s integrated circuit (IC). In this work, it is demonstrated that under certain conditions, tags’ uplink/downlink losses become significantly asymmetrical, causing tens of decibels more loss in the uplink, thus making the system uplink limited. Our study reveals the necessity of developing RFID readers with higher sensitivity. It is shown that in extreme cases, the uplink loss can be 40 dB greater than in the downlink.

The current recommendation prototype on the Apollo Repository will be turned off on 03 February 2023. Although the pilot has been fruitful for both parties, the service provider IKVA is focusing on horizon scanning products and so the recommender service can no longer be supported. We recognise the importance of recommender services in supporting research discovery and are evaluating offerings from other service providers.
