Abstract: This paper presents the design and development of a compact one-seater hovercraft vehicle. In particular, the hovering and propulsion mechanisms are investigated. A mathematical model is derived to describe the dynamics of the proposed prototypes. Consequently, experimental studies are conducted to evaluate the proposed mechanisms. This development draws inspiration from meeting user requirements and aims to improve upon the currently available conventional designs of hovercrafts, also known as air cushion vehicles, for greater user-friendliness. From a wider perspective, over the course of history of study on hovercrafts, attention has converged mostly on large-scale vehicles in commercial and military sectors. Apart from hobbyists', little attention has been given to the development of compact light-weight hovercrafts, into which this paper will provide some valuable insights. © 2013 IEEE.
