That's fancy speak for the technology that enables balancing. It's proprietary and delivers incredible maneuverability (true zero turning radius), a small footprint, and a fantastically unique riding experience.
In addition to being clean and extremely efficient, electric propulsion enables fine adjustments to be made to each wheel (for accurate turning and a smooth ride), and a precise, software-based approach to traction control and braking.
Segway was at the forefront of the development of Lithium Ion batteries for transportation and has learned a lot about the advanced sensing required for more efficient energy use that leads to longer battery life.
You may feel as though the Segway PT can read your mind. It's not magic. It's the combination of propulsion, energy, inertial sensing, and a straightforward user interface that enables a ride that will force you to hold back a smile.
Mechanical controls are so yesterday. We're all about using the latest in sensory technology to enable safe control through redundant systems that provide input for acceleration, braking, steering, and other functions.
Segway's approach to user control is that of minimalism. We want to encourage a natural connection between rider and machine. Our innovative sensing technologies allow us to look beyond traditional controls and deliver something better.
