This paper investigates the performance of RFID antennas on safety glasses. Dipole antennas have been designed to match an RFID chip and have been placed in different locations on standard safety glasses. The performance of the antenna is evaluated through simulations and measurements. Top center location is found to be best for optimal transmission in free space and when the glasses are worn. Reading range decreases by around 60% when the antenna is in close proximity to the human body.
