Antennas used for communication purpose have been grown recently using the direct printing methods to ensure light weight technology, ease of fabrication and simply available flexible substrates in the field of printed electronics. The use of flexible non-conventional substrates in this regard has been the current issue for the provision of same results obtained as that of using a conventional substrate. In this paper, the authors propose low cost printed antenna on a non-conventional substrate that provides higher read range (using ISM band) for Real Time Location Systems (RTLSs) (for e.g. wireless sensing).
