With the increasing awareness about resource depletion and ever-increasing fuel prices, people are finding new, innovative, cheap, effortless and quick means of transportation for commuting short distances. Of all the available options, e-skateboard is the cheapest but generally very unstable and accidentprone because the rider has to tilt his body to change the direction of motion making the commute dangerous and suited to only experienced riders. This project helps in overcoming this issue while not disturbing the advantages, such as cheapness and portability. The foot operated steering system helps in changing the direction of motion by light push on the steering lever with the rider’s leg while the rider stands still on the stable skateboard chassis.
