This paper proposes the design of an Ultra High- frequency (UHF) based passive radio frequency identification (RFID) passive tag-sensor to monitor the structural crack of a coal mining conveyor belt. A detailed comparative analysis is also conducted on the effects of varying crack orientations and widths. However, it is a challenging task, since the conveyor belt is constructed from specific non-conductive multilayered materials with different dielectric properties. To illustrate the application of the proposed sensing technique, a RFID-based tag and conveyor belt model is designed and simulated. The simulated results indicate that the proposed method can be adopted for wireless monitoring of cracks in coal mining conveyor belts.

In general, crack monitoring of coal mining conveyor belt is carried out by simple visual inspections that are found to be inefficient due to being quite labor-intensive and for providing inaccurate health conditions of the conveyor belt. In this article, we propose a robust and low-cost passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF)-based radio frequency identification (RFID) crack sensing system, which allows the processing and detection of the presence of crack from the sensors’ data in real time. A graph...
