We introduce the world's first hybrid radio platform which combines the strengths of active radio (long range and robustness to interference) and Computational RFID (CRFID) (low power consumption). By a set of laboratory experiments, we show that our hybrid radio - composed of Wireless Identification and Sensing Platform (WISP) CRFID radio and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) - obtains higher goodput than WISP and lower energy consumption than BLE, both as stand-alone platforms.
