Design of a radio frequency identification (rfid) antenna

Kalaycı, Sefa
Fundamental features of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems used in different application areas will be reviewed. Techniques used in realizing RFID antenna systems will be studied and the procedure to realize a specific RFID antenna type possessing desired characteristics will be described. Electrical properties such as radiation pattern, impedance will be predicted using analytical and/or computer simulation techniques. Experimental investigations will be carried out to complement the theoretical work.


Detection of airport runways in optical satellite images
Zöngür, Uğur; Ulusoy, İlkay; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
Advances in hardware and pattern recognition techniques, along with the widespread utilization of remote sensing satellites, have urged the development of automatic target detection systems. Automatic detection of airports is particularly essential, due to the strategic importance of these targets. In this thesis, a detection method is proposed for airport runways, which is the most distinguishing element of an airport. This method, which operates on large optical satellite images, is composed of a segmenta...
Collaborative mobile target imaging in ultra-wideband wireless radar sensor networks
Arık, Muharrem; Akan, Özgür Barış; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
Wireless sensor networks (WSN) have thus far been used for detection and tracking of static and mobile targets for surveillance and security applications. However, detection and tracking do not suffice for a complete satisfaction of these applications and an accurate target classification. To address this need, among various target classification methods, imaging of target yields the most valuable information. Nevertheless, imaging of mobile targets moving over an area requires networked and collaborative d...
Methodology for performance analysis of randomly-spread CDMA systems over multipath fading channels via crosscorrelation matrix non-asymptotic average eigenvalue densities
Ertug, O; Baykal, Buyurman; Unal, BS (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2003-08-07)
A new methodology for closed-form theoretical performance analysis of randomly-spread CDMA systems over multipath fading channels with multiuser receivers is presented. The basis of the analysis is the representation of the random signal to interference ratios at finite system parameters in terms of the eigenvalues of crosscorrelation matrices for which the non-asymptotic average densities are found or known, The methodology presented complements the asymptotic Ruining theory used in similar previous work o...
Simulation and verification of security attacks on light-weight RFID protocols
Ahmed, Saman; Diker Yücel, Melek; Department of Cryptography (2014)
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is fast reaching all avenues of application. From retail to warehousing, tracking farm animals to monitoring medicine dosage in human body, traffic control to airport baggage control, it is penetrating all forums and industries and providing ease of deployment and automated visibility and management of inventories which was not possible with traditional barcodes. Along with its superiority over barcodes, RFID systems are also required to be costeffective to b...
Modelling and noise analysis of closed-loop capacitive sigma-delta mems accelerometer
Boğa, Biter; Külah, Haluk; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
This thesis presents a detailed SIMULINK model for a conventional capacitive Σ-Δ accelerometer system consisting of a MEMS accelerometer, closed-loop readout electronics, and signal processing units (e.g. decimation filters). By using this model, it is possible to estimate the performance of the full accelerometer system including individual noise components, operation range, open loop sensitivity, scale factor, etc. The developed model has been verified through test results using a capacitive MEMS accelero...
