A beginner-friendly project for those who want to gain skills and custom build an electric skateboard. The project is centered on improving the rider's experience and safety.
With the rise of electric cars, it was inevitable that skateboards would also undergo electrification. The team is designing a pressure-sensitive electric skateboard entirely from scratch using Computer Aided Design (CAD), Finite Element Analysis (FEA), material selection and electrical circuitry skills. These interdisciplinary skills will be learnt and taught throughout the beginner-friendly project to enable students to develop and share innovative solutions. Custom features unique to this e-skate are incorporated to enhance the riding experience and the safety of the skateboarder.
