Optimising Efficiency and Gain of Small Meander Line RFID Antennas using Ant Colony System
MetadataShow full item record
Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) technology is increasingly being used to uniquely identify objects. An important component of RFID systems is the design of the antenna - which usually takes the form of a compacted meander line. This task becomes an optimisation problem as different designs will have different efficiencies and resonant frequencies. In this paper, we explore the use of a multi-objective version of ant colony system. This constructive meta-heuristic, as shown, is highly suitable for this problem.
