Can RFID readers use this format to collect information?
RFID readers typically capture data from tags, then associate time stamps, along with reader and antenna IDs, with the tag data and make all of that information available to middleware or other applications in XML or CVS format. Some readers may use other data formats. You will need to create a middleware application that will take the data from the reader and store it in an SQL database, and then create another application that will allow you to run queries against the database and analyze that information in the database. Many reader makers offer software development kits or applications that will do these tasks for you.
