Backscatter system

Backscatter system

UHF Wave

Tags

Reader

Antenna

Four elements of UHF backscatter system


Backscatter system1

Backscatter system

Expensive and do most of the jobs.

EPC C1Gen2

Transmit/receive signals

Polarized, ‘fat’(e.g. )

From 300MHz to 3GHz

EPC C1Gen2: 900MHz~915MHz

No battery and weak

Tiny and cheap. 5 cents to 15 cents


Locating every unique rfid tag

Locating every unique RFID tag

Locating a tag means almost locating everything


Existing approaches

Existing approaches

By distance estimation.

RSS as distance indicator.

Influenced by environment, tag orientation and diversity.


Existing approaches1

Existing approaches

By reference tags(anchor).

Compare fingerprint: RSS(LANDMARC), multipath profile(PinIt)

A lot of deployment work

Granularity of anchors largely determines accuracy.

Signal features cots readers provide

Signal features COTS readers provide

RSS & phase are available, e.g. Impinj readers

RSS: not reliable

Phase:


Empirical studies of phase

Empirical studies of phase

Gaussian distribution.

Deviation:

Phase v.s. frequency

Phase is stable.


Empirical studies of phase1

Empirical studies of phase

8 orientations.

Remain at a same level

Phase v.s. tag orientation

Phase is unrelated to tag orientation.


Phase in backscatter system

Phase in backscatter system

Periodicity

Linear

Phase v.s. distance


Challenges of using phase

Challenges of using phase

  • Stable, unrelated to orientation, related to distance

  • Tag diversity:

    • Should be applicable for all tags without measuring first

  • Periodicity:

    • Can not get from directly


Backpos tag diversity

BackPos - tag diversity

  • Use phase difference from different antennas

  • Eliminate periodicity

    • Get distance difference from phase difference


Eliminate periodicity

Eliminate periodicity

  • Distance difference restrict

    • : one

    • : two possible

  • Naive approach

    • Triangle constraint

    • between antennas


Eliminate periodicity1

Eliminate periodicity

  • Naive approach

    • Triangle constraint: 𝜆/4 between antennas

    • 𝜆≈32𝑐𝑚 (𝑓≈910𝑀𝐻𝑧)

w=25cm

w=25cm

Triangle restrict does not work


Backpos periodicity

BackPos - periodicity

  • Use feasible region to relax antenna distance constraint

    • Antenna has reading zone

    • Just positions in reading zone satisfy distance difference restrict

Reading zone


Backpos periodicity1

BackPos - periodicity

  • Use feasible region to relax antenna distance constraint

    • Feasible region: region that all positions satisfy distance difference restrict.

    • Cover reading zone intersections of antennas

Feasible region


Backpos periodicity2

BackPos - periodicity

  • Hyperbola constraint

    • and are two focus points

    • Angle between two asymptote line:

:

Hyperbola restrict


Backpos distance difference

BackPos– distance difference

  • =>

    • or

3

Two possible :

two half hyperbola for each antenna pair


Backpos hyperbola intersection

BackPos– hyperbola intersection

  • For three antennas:

    • , -> ,

    • , -> ,

Three possible points:

Hyperbola intersection


Backpos estimated position

BackPos– estimated position

  • Reader: 4 antenna ports

  • If readings are accurate:

  • With error:

Discussion conclusion

Discussion & Conclusion

  • Explore phase in backscatter systems

  • Propose BackPos

    • No reference tags, 12.8cm

  • Implement and evaluate BackPos with COTS devices

  • Limitations:

    • Not suitable for NLOS scenarios

    • 4 antennas
