Personal Transporters have been designed to help decrease the pollution emitted and as a substitute to the typical combustion engine vehicle. However, due to its high price and high maintenance cost, not many people can afford to have one. The aim of the project is to design a low cost drive system. However, this report will have a more detailed calculations and design process of the project. In the first phase of the project, the author surveyed information related to the drive system of a personal transporter nowadays. Most of the method used in the project is by analytical calculations since it does not require building a prototype. The second phase of the project is mainly on calculating the forces acted on the PT itself. It is to ensure that the drive power of the designed PT can overcome the forces acting on it. A dynamic analysis was performed to determine the power required to drive the PT at the specified mode of motion. The transmission, battery and steering systems are also designed to meet the motion requirement. The author will then select a design concept on how the PT will look and where the drive system will be located. The design selected is based on suitability, simplicity of the PT and comfort of the users. After that, the author select drive system components with required specifications. Analysis on the components is needed to make sure that the performance are the same if not better than the set specifications set in the objectives. Towards the end phase of the project, the author may provide a detailed design of the proposed personal transporter with some assumptions using CAD which will help designer to actually fabricate the personal transporter. In conclusion, if the project is a success, then it will help the designers to produce a low cost personal transporter which indirectly help the consumers to own a personal transporter of their own. With everyone having the personal transporter, it will help to ease congestion and pollution problem in cities.
