Would It Be Possible to Count Inventory With One Antenna and Write Data to the Tag With Another at the Same Time?
For example, the Low-Level Reader Protocol (LLRP) standard says the commands are queued. Are there any devices with a proprietary application programming interface (API) that could fulfill them simultaneously?
It would not be possible to simultaneously read a tag's ID number and write to that tag. An antenna can only communicate with one reader at a time. The passive UHF Gen 2 RFID standard does allow for two sessions, enabling two separate readers to inventory tags. Reader #1 could communicate with a tag while it was in session A, then reader #2 could communicate with the tag once it switched to session B. However, I do not believe sessions would allow one reader to interrogate tags and another to write to them, because it would take more time and energy to write to the tag.
