I'm a Computer Engineering student, and my full knowledge of RFIDs is limited to the research I have conducted thus far (mainly using this site). As such, there are still some general concerns I have that I could not find direct answers to.
My current intent is to use an RFID reader module (possibly the MFRC522) connected to a microcontroller (I currently use a TM4C123GH6PM, but would switch to Arduino if it would be easier) to read in ~60 RFID tags stacked directly on top of each other.
As I have understood thus far, to do so would require the use of a reader which supports anti-collision. After discovering the MFRC522 supports this, my new question has become - is there a limit to the number of tags the reader can handle? I understand that the reader's range could be problematic, but this aside, would it be able to handle that many tags? I suspect that this will not be the case, and if not, what kind of things should I be looking for in a reader in order to handle such a scenario?
I'll reiterate - I only have a very basic understanding of RFIDs. I am much more educated in handling the microcontroller, and for my current project I would like to utilize a reader module to handle a scenario of ~60 stacked tags. Thanks in advance for any feedback on this situation!
