Sensor transponders working with inductive coupling are used increasingly in medicine and industry. In particular, applications in metallic environments are of interest. A new model approach is presented considering influences of varying environments. The aim is to optimize mobile devices for read-out wireless sensors. Based on outcomes of the new simulation approach, smart techniques and algorithms for optimal energy transfer and signal detection can be developed.
