This book discusses the fundamentals of RFID (operating principles, modulation schemes, channel models, etc.) and the state-of-the-art research results in signal processing for passive RFID; MIMO, blind source separation, interference avoidance (i.e. anti-collision), and spatial localization. The book consists of the following chapters: Introduction (overview of different automatic ID identification systems e.g. RFID, barcode, biometrics, smart cards); Chapter 2: Fundamentals of RFID systems (operating principles, passive, semi-passive, and active RFID, analog circuits for RFID, channel models, basic signal processing, and challenges); Chapter 3: Advanced modulation schemes for RFID; Chapter 4: Multiple antennas for RFID (MIMO principles, MIMO-RFID channel models, signal design, and space-time coding); Chapter 5: Blind signal processing; Chapter 6: Anti-collision for multiple RFID tags; Chapter 7: Localization with RFID.
