And can that information be collected on flash memory?

Conventional active radio frequency identification transponders either awaken and send their signal to one reader, or broadcast a signal that is picked up by several readers, and that information is then used to locate the tag within a coverage area. So they cannot send information to each other. There are, however, mesh-networking devices that communicate via radio frequency that can transmit information from node to node, and that information is then transmitted to a host system. These devices do not typically have flash memory, so they would need to be customized for your particular application.
