ESE350 Final Project: Pivot Board Concept

For our final project, Justin and I are creating a self-balancing, two-wheeled, electronic skateboard. The board will have two motorized wheels across along the short axis of the board. The rider will be able to shift their weight forward or backwards to increase or decrease the speed of the board and the motors will respond accordingly while keeping the skateboard leveled. Turning is accomplished with a wireless, joystick-embedded glove through which the user can communicate a desired turn angle to the microcontroller located on the pivot board.

First we will make a small scale prototype as a platform for the testing the embedded system and controls.
