Below is a video recording of the IEEE RFID 2018 panel session, “The Past, Present, and Future of RFID”. Prof. Sanjay Sarma moderates as Prof. Matt Reynolds, Dr. Paul Muller, and Prof. Greg Durgin provide commentary. Interesting questions include:
- What are some of the interesting future applications ?
- What are the biggest disappointments with RFID?
- What would you like to see in a “Gen 3” RFID tag?

I found that students liked the link between the pulses on a transmission line and the concept of an impulse response of a channel.
Long before the word curate was ever heard outside of a museum, the GTPG took a very aggressive position in preserving and showcasing student research and design work. From day 1, the group’s website posted team projects, technical reports, research papers, and sundry outputs of academic investigation were posted to the www.propagation.gatech.edu website. It takes a lot of time to develop and maintain this type of research website, but pays big dividends in the professional lives of the students that participate in the courses and research program. Below are several key reasons to curate both research and academic student work. [Read more…]
