This paper introduces a radio frequency identification (RFID) tag for urination detection. The proposed tag is embedded into paper diapers in order to detect the patient's urination immediately. For this tag, we designed an RFID tag antenna at 950MHz, which matches the impedance of the associated integrated circuit (IC) chip. In addition, we calculate the antenna characteristics and measure the reflection coefficient (S11) and radiation pattern of the antenna. The results show that this system can be used to detect urination.
