RFID Test and Development Suite
Over the past decade IMaR has established itself as a leader in applied research focusing on delivering Intelligent Mechatronics and RFID solutions for industry, the centre has built considerable expertise in the field of RFID and related emerging technologies with a proven track record developing RFID solutions for our industrial partners across an number of domains including retail, agritech, supply chain and manufacturing sectors. These applications have included wearable prototypes, Track & Trace solutions, inventory management, patient safety, asset tracking, authentication and Real Time Location Systems (RTLS).
IMaR possesses of a state-of-the-art RFID test and development suite, which includes a full complement of RFID readers, antennas, RF test equipment, as well as large catalogue of RFID tags of varying properties which satisfy many different use cases.This facility includes a range of RFID readers covering a wide range of technologies (HF, LF, UNF, RAIN, NFC, UWB), associated antenna arrays/multiplexers and a series of RFID test equipment to measure performance of RFID devices and application setups, verify conformance and support the development of readers, tags and ICs, measurement of tag frequency sensitivity, communication range and backscatter measurements. Where possible, all equipment will be relatively portable to allow deployment and test of RFID equipment on-site in industrial environment.
