Hoverboard Self-balancing scooter reviews that most of the people who are riding this scooter are feeling an amazing riding experience. Let us now see the list of components integrated by the hoverboard.
- Battery pack
- Charging port
- Electric motors inside the wheels
- Infrared sensors
- LED lights
- Logic board
- Plastic shell
- Power switch
- Pressure pads
- Speed sensors inside the wheels
- Steel frame with a central pivot
Let us discuss working of some of these components:
The wheel sensor
The hoverboard wheels have electric motors and a tilt/speed sensor. This sensor detects the speed or we say revolutions per minute of the wheel and send the result to the gyroscope and boards that control the speed provided inside the main body.
Gyroscope and the board controlling the speed gets instructions from the sensor located inside the wheels and then the information is sent to the main logic board.
This board needs calibration and you can zero the gyroscopes reading to flat so that your hoverboard settings read 0”.
Do you want to know How the main logic board work?
Just like the CPU of the Computer, this logic board is called the “brain” of hoverboard self-balanciing scooter to get the real-time status of the speed, gyroscope, and relative speed of the individual wheel.
The main logic board manages the power system when you are enjoying your scooter ride in the “beginner mode” or in “locked”.
The battery Pack
This battery pack just like other Electronics and Electrical equipment powers the scooter while riding your self-balancing scooter on the road. The common battery pack as per the Self-balancing scooter reviews is 36V, 4400mAH.
How your movement is detected in this Hoverboard?
swagway x1 review confirms that the movement is detected by the pressure pads that usually sit in the two switches. When you start riding your scooter and lean in the forward direction, the front-switch automatically gets pushed down, and a thin plastic “wall” comes in between the Infrared LED and a sensor. The sensor detects this IR light and as long as it detects it, the logic board conveys a message to the motor to stay still.
When this light gets interrupted when the switch is pushed down due to the weight of person riding the scooter, the logic board asks the motor to start spinning in a particular direction. To make this step clear, let us take an example: you are riding your scooter and you make an attempt to turn to the left, your foot will activate the front-right switch, to spin the right-wheel in the forward direction, and the left foot will activate your scooters’ back left switch to spin the left-side wheel in backward direction.
How to balance your self-balancing scooter?
The wheel has tilt-sensors that inform the gyroscopes about your direction and distance when leaning forward. The gyroscopes the passes this information onto the logic board.
Now you know how all of the parts work, you can enjoy your ride and get an adventurous experience.
