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 ;-)
