Short summary
A target simulator for RFID direction of arrival estimation systems is proposed. This simulator can be used in the evaluation of such systems and offers a method for fast, economical and, above all, reproducible and transferable analysis of their performance. Signal models and descriptions of two typical detrimental propagation effects are derived. The developed system structure and hardware modules are presented and exemplary evaluation results are given, showing the application of this method.
