Control Electrical Skateboard Using Your Phone

by Unallocated Author

Skateboard lover’s would love to try electrical skateboards. This electrical skateboard speed can be controlled by your smart phone, since the skateboard is powered with an electric motor.

A guy called Nick made a skateboard with a kit brought from online including wheels, deck, trucks and a belt. The trucks is welded with a motor in place already. He used Turnigy SK3 192KV electric motor to move the skateboard.

Now to connect the electrical motor under skateboard and to a smartphone Nick chose to use an Arduino Nano hooked up to a Bluetooth module. The Nano was able to directly drive the motor controller, and the Bluetooth module made it easy to sync up to a mobile phone. The Android app was written using MIT’s App Inventor software. This software allows you to stop or start the skateboard.
