Qik 2s9v1 + Proximity Sensor + Gear motor with Arduino

For the past two days I have literally lost my patience with Qik 2s9v1 dual serial motor controller. I have referred so many website and I could not make this controller work. After hours of searching I found this library which was compatible with Arduino 1.0. Now I got a library which can used to communicate with the controller but the commands I send was not getting received. I posted in Pololu forum and I didn’t get a reply. Today I joined Sparkfun IRC chatroom and requested for help. @agmlego helped me in resolving the issue. I was using wrong baud rate for serial communication. Once that got the issue resolved I jumped into controlling the motor using a Proximity Sensor.

The mission was to change the motor rotation to reverse if any object is close by.

I am really happy with the progress, I hope these reference bellow helps 😉

EasyDriver + Stepper Motor with Arduino

Today was a busy shopping day in Deira, Dubai. Finally found a location where I can buy electronic stuffs like resistors, capacitors, LED etc. The things I bought today was

  • Regulated Power Supply
  • Soldering Station

Once I was home, I started to solder the EasyDriver Stepper Motor Driver.

Basically I soldered few male header so I can fix the EasyDriver board easily to a bread board. Then connected the Stepper Motor to the driver board and needed connection to Arduino board.

Liquid Crystal Display with Ardunio

The learning process with Arduino continues… Last week I had ordered bunch of goodies from Sparkfun, and today morning I received them. I tried to assemble few circuits, but I understood I need to get a decent soldering station to continue my experiments. But I was able to make Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) to work. But I had to hold it in a position for it to work.

Temperature Sensor with Arduino & LED

This is a mini project using Arduino. This uses a temperature sensor and Arduino Uno.
