Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology has enabled a new class of low-cost, wireless "zero-power" sensors which open up applications in highly-pervasive and distributed rfid-enabled sensing which were previously not feasible with wired or battery powered wireless sensor nodes. This article provides a review of RFID sensing techniques utilizing chipbased and chipless RFID principles, and presents a variety of implementations of RFID-based sensors which can be used to detect strain,
