Hi Taylan,

Both Send and receive need to have the same AM id, something like the
example below.

MyAppM.ReceiveCmdMsg -> Comm.ReceiveMsg[AM_PERIODICMSG];
MyAppM.SendMsg -> Comm.SendMsg[AM_PERIODICMSG];
where Comm is wired to GenericComm.

Also, there are more examples of Send/Recieve messages in

I have one question, how are you planning to calculate the distance
between two motes?
