Traveling long distances on foot, such as across campus or from the parking lot to class, can be exhausting and time-consuming. While not physically demanding, the journey takes time out of our hectic college schedule. To improve our time efficiency, this project provides a relatively lightweight, powered solution for travelling long distances quickly and effectively while maintaining full control and safety, a current limitation of traditional skateboards. With a compact and flexible skateboard design that provides extended range without sacrificing rider comfort, this electric skateboard has the battery capacity to travel all around campus on a single charge. It has regenerative braking for on-demand stopping and safe travel through the use of a wireless controller. The purpose of this project was to fill the room for improvement of the electric skateboard by adding safety measures which is front light and reflective strip to let other road users notice the presence of the skateboard rider and to see the road more clearly. The skateboard will be controlled by a single handheld remote control that will be able to manipulate speed and direction of the motor to minimalize the time needed and physical energy used to reach a destination.
