You should be able to tweak the smartshelf software for chapter 6 to work with this reader... but you'll have to get familiar with the communications protocol that this new reader uses.

You will have to study the communication protocol between reader (SonMicro) and host (PC). How do you query the reader for tag IDs? How are IDs from tags sent to the PC? Does the reader send a constant stream of IDs to the PC or just a list of IDs when you query for them?

The Smart Shelf software is meant to query the reader and list the IDs present. If your reader does not support this, and instead just sends a stream of IDs back to the PC, then you will need to do a lot more tweaking to filter out duplicate IDs from an array or disconnected ADO recordset so you alway have an up-to-date list of present tag IDs, but no duplicates.

You will also need some programming skill. All the software examples I have are written in Visual Basic 6.0, but most people skilled in software development can derive what needs to be done in other languages such as Visual C, VB .NET, etc. If you need help with the programming aspect, there are many other forums and resources online to help you.
