Dr. Emran Md Amin,  Research Fellow, Department of ECSE, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia,gave a Talk on “Chipless RFID Tag Sensor for Ubiquitous Environment Monitoring” at the IICT seminar room on 14th October, 2015 at 4:30 PM.

A chipless RFID tag is a passive microwave device that can be  directly printed on polymer with conductive ink. The aim of chipless RFID tag is to replace the existing barcodes used for item level tagging. Emerging new technologies are creating a paradigm shift in the chipless RFID application domain. New fabrication and material processing techniques have made it possible to create circuits and components that are nanometre scale. Combined with fabrication techniques new materials are emerging that have the potential to challenge well known fundamental theories in physics. A chipless RFID tag sensor provides identi)ication data as well as monitors a number of physical parameters of tagged objects. The tag sensor is a passive microwave device that uses intelligent/ smart polymer materials for environment sensing. The tag sensor is designed by integrating the Microwave and Materials Engineering and realized through nanofabrication facilities. The novelty of a Chipless RFID tag sensor has remarkable impact in research areas, economic and social aspects. To this date, a completely passive, printable, low cost, mass deployable, environmentally friendly Chipless RFID sensor node has not been reported for monitoring multiple sensing parameters. The RFID sensor measures temperature, pressure, humidity, pH level, presence of noxious gases and dielectric properties of media and objects. This wireless sensor tag is suited for applications such as, condition monitoring of perishable products and pharmaceuticals; wearable health monitoring tags for patients; structural health monitoring and numerous real world applications.


Dr. Emran Md Amin is working as a Research Fellow at the Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering (ECSE) Department of Monash University, Australia. He received the B.Eng. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) Department from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in 2009. He served as a lecturer at the EEE Department, BUET in 2010. He obtained his PhD from ECSE Department of Monash University in 2015. He worked as a visi.ng researcher at the AutoID lab, Massachuse0s Ins.tute of Technology (MIT), USA on passive RFID sensors. Dr. Amin is currently working at Monash Microwave Antennas RFID and Sensors Research (MMARS) group of Monash University. His research area is Chipless RFID Sensors using Electromagnetic metamaterial structures. His aim is to develop a chipless RFID Sensor pla1orm using microwave resonators and intelligent polymers for low cost.
