At Cal Poly traveling long distances only accessible by foot such as across campus or from the car park to class can be tiring and time-consuming. While not physically demanding, the trek consumes time in our tight college life schedule. To improve our time efficiency this project provides a relatively lightweight, powered solution to quickly and effectively travel long distances while maintaining full control and safety even on hills, a current limitation of traditional skateboards.
This electric skateboard includes the battery capacity to travel all around campus on a single charge with a compact and flexible skateboard design that provides extended range without compromising on rider comfort. It includes regenerative braking for on-demand stopping and safe travel down even the steepest hills on campus using a wireless controller.
