This thesis provides low cost chipless RFID based sensing solutions for a number of specified Internet of Things (IoT) application areas, namely- Precision Agriculture, smart buildings, and retail and supply chain. These areas have a burning requirement of low cost sensing and item tagging devices. However, due to the absence of such devices, these applications areas do not receive enough traction in terms of industrial applications. This thesis involves the development of such inexpensive devices to monitor soil moisture and salinity contents, leaf moisture contents, temperature in perishable food items and environment as well as crack in public infrastructure.
