The Segway PT is a two wheeled electric vehicle with self-balancing, battery-powered and invented by Dean Kamen. Producing by Segway Inc. of New Hampshire, USA. The word Segway is a homophone of the word segue, meaning smooth transition. PT is just an abbreviation for personal transporter.
Computer and two electric motors in the base of the device keep the Segway PT upright when powered on with balancing enabled. User commands the Segway to go forward by shifting their weight forward on the platform (gyroscope), and backward by shifting their weight backward. The Segway detects, as it balances, the change in its center of mass, and first establishes and then maintains a corresponding speed, forward or backward.
Gyroscopic sensors and fluid-based leveling sensors detect the weight shift when is back or front. To turn, the user presses the handlebar to the left or the right side of roads. Segway PTs can reach a speed of 20.1 kilometers per hour.
Segway Umag offers Segway for tours, promotions, workshops, events and we sell segways (used and new).
