This page is about the core mechanical build of the Batboard. There are some YouTube videos about this, or scroll down for pictures and words:
I wanted to have a go at building a vehicle that has electric steering so I can make it intelligent – eventually it can be laser guided and have autonomous features. I decided to build a stand-on board that Batman would have.
The front steering wheels are mounted on Go-kart stub axles mounted the opposite way around – they will eventually be driven by an electric motor. The wheel hubs and tyres are 3D printed in PLA and Ninjaflex:
