Chipless tracker to transform the library industry [cheaper replacement for RFID tags]

[From the article: He said the
chipless RFID system was cheaper, smaller and faster than any other on the
market. The team has developed a chipless tag and a high-frequency scanner. The
new chipless RFID tags uses “back scatter” technology to reduce the
costs by replacing the expensive microchip in standard RFID tags with a series
of printed silver squares on paper and plastic. Its large 24-bit capacity can support
up to 16 million entries. “We are making fully printable tags like
barcodes so you can use the conducting ink, like copper ink or silver ink, and
print on a level like optical barcodes that you can read with a scanner and it
can tell the code of the stack,” Dr Karmakar said.The challenge had been
to develop a scanner that was powerful enough to read the antennae on the tag,
which was so small, he said.]
