For surveillance in supply chain smart capacitive humidity sensor are integrated with RFID tag. Change in ambient temperature leads to non liner characteristics of capacitive humidity sensor. Under such condition to obtain correct humidity readout, several techniques have been proposed. To provide compensation and self-calibration...
