Effect of metallic objects and liquid supplies on RFID links.

This paper studies the effect of nearby metallic objects and liquid supplies, which may be commonly encountered in warehouses, on RFID link characteristics and read range. Such studies are performed in two different fronts. Simulation results using a commercial finite-difference time-domain software package provide detailed views of the effect of metallic objects and liquid supplies on the signal strength. The read range is further examined by experiments.
