Transfer Tattoo RFID tags are described for person locating scenarios. The technology considered is Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) at the UHF Band where it is possible to obtain wireless connection over distances of several meters using passive, or battery assisted transfers. The tags have the profile of tattoos and can be mounted straight onto the skin. Promising results for enhancing read distances, possibly to tens of meters, have been obtained using very thin battery technologies.
