01 Adaptive Learning
“Adaptive learning feels more personalized and motivated me” - User Study
sk8mate detects how badly you wobble, and adjusts the length of the skateboard that best suits your skill level: beginner, medium, advanced.
It's generally easier to balance and maneauver with a longer board. More advanced skaters can skate on smaller boards with comfort ease.
We built custom components that add to the smarts of our adaptive skateboard, including a triple-axis gyroscope, custom-built sliding mechanism, and stepper motor to actuate the system.
I wrote the algorithms that sense balance and wobbles, and to actuate adjustments. I also designed and developed the project website and demo video.
