Abstract

Nowadays, the explosive growth of Internet-of-Things-related applications has required the design of low-cost and ultra-low-power wireless sensors; backscatter communication has been introduced as a cutting-edge technology that could address the above constraints. For sensing applications, the monitoring of plant water stress is of high importance in smart agriculture. Instead of the traditional ground soil moisture measurements, leaf sensing is an old technology, which is used for the detection of plant water stress. Considering the above topics, this paper aims to provide a contemporary and literature review on fundamentals, applications and research efforts/progress on backscatter systems for leaf sensing applications. It is described how backscatter technology could be exploited for 'one sensor per plant' applications in future precision agriculture.
