English abstract:
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems operating
in the Ultra High Frequency (UHF) band, are exposed
to fading. While state-of-the-art RFID systems employ multiple
antennas, with random selection of a single receive path to obviate
the performance losses, this paper proposes to employ antenna
diversity by the combination of all paths applying maximal
ratio combining. An experimental performance comparison
of maximum ratio combining and random antenna selection with
two receive antennas in a high fading environment is given, which
demonstrates the superior performance of our proposal.
