Abstract

The effect of gaps in-between a human body and a wearable textile RFID antenna operating at 923 MHz is investigated. Due to a high isolation provided by a ground plane, the resonant frequency of the antenna is only slightly altered. The antenna gain and communication range increase to the highest value at a quarter-wave length gap between the antenna and the human body, then decrease when the antenna is moved further.
