Elizabeth Montalbano : RFID to Track Body Movements for Novel Smart Technologies

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have developed ways to use RFID tags to track movement, allowing integration of the tags into next-generation wearable designs and other smart applications.

RFID tags have been around long enough that they are almost an overlooked technology in terms of new advancements. However, Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) researchers have found a new way to use the technology to track body movements and detect shape changes, leading to two RFID-based innovations that can lead to novel wearable designs, researchers said in a CMU news release.
