Abstract/Artist Statement

The purpose of this project is to create an affordable and reliable motorized longboard. The product will be an alternative means of transportation for short and medium distance trips, and will also help to broaden the demographic of those who longboard. Motorized longboards that are currently on the market tend to be either very expensive or have poorly designed features, like aesthetics or functionality. To go about designing the product, the pros and cons of existing systems were compared, and eventually modified to achieve the desired objectives. Finite element analysis was used to test the feasibility of the motor mount design, and a torque/speed analysis was performed to verify that the desired motors would perform adequately.
