At A Glance

Researchers at Colorado State University have developed a novel 3D printed metal/plastic composite shielding to control the distance and direction from which RFID sensors can be read.  The novel composite shielding is capable of blocking EMI and RFI readability except in the direction and from the distance desired providing variable distance sensor security.  Methods and materials of this technology are proprietary.

Background

​The use of custom-manufactured casing provides the opportunity to fit sensors, cameras, and other surveillance devices into desired locations, with desired aesthetics.  Additionally, casing can provide protection against weather and tampering, while preventing war-driving (searching for default settings of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and other devices by a person usually in a moving vehicle, using a laptop or smartphone). 

Benefits
  • Customizable
  • Personalization
  • Variable control of EMI/RFI shielding
Applications
  • RFID technologies and similar
  • Shielding WIFI based sensors and Bluetooth systems
  • Technologies commonly used in smartphones
