Abstract
This paper presents a solution to integrate a metallic gas cylinder in an Internet of Things (IoT) network. The work briefly explains the different attempts made, then focusing on describing the final solution. The discussion has in account the simulated and measured results. The final result is a small antenna (dimensions lower than 90mm x 35mm) capable of taking advantage of the metallic surface of the gas cylinder without compromising its input impedance.
