DIY Motorized Skateboard controlled by Raspberry Pi Zero Reaches Speeds of 30km/h #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

via Raspberry Pi Pod

Matthew Timmons-Brown (aka The Raspberry Pi Guy) has been around for ages, providing tutorial and other videos. Now, he has embarked upon his most ambitious project yet by building his own motorised skateboard, controlled (of course) by a Raspberry Pi.

A Pi Zero sends a servo signal to a speed controller, which is powered by a 22V 8A battery. The control signal is then sent to the motor – a whopping 63mm Alien Power System brushless jobby that is rated for 80A, 3200-watts and carries the skateboard at speeds of up to 30km/h.
