The worlds first self-balancing human transporter

When Dean Kamen unveiled the Segway PT on ABC’s Good Morning America, he described the machine as “the world’s first self-balancing human transporter.” When you look at the machine in motion, you get an idea of what he’s talking about.

Computers and motors in the base of the device keep the Segway PT upright when powered on with balancing enabled.

Users simply lean forward to go forward, lean back to go backward, and turn by using a “Lean Steer” handlebar, leaning it left or right. LeanSteer® technology immediately sends the user gliding in the precise direction they want to go, at exactly the speed they want to travel.

Power and speed yet you're totally in control

By straightening up their stance, the user brings the Segway PT to a gentle stop.

Gyroscopic sensors are used to detect tilting of the device which indicates a departure from perfect balance. Motors driving the wheels are commanded as needed to bring the PT back into balance.

You get the sense of power and speed, yet you also feel a sense of safety and absolute control. It all feels natural, safe, and instinctive.

Importantly, the Segway PT is emission-free during operation and is almost completely silent. It’s a truly eco friendly green machine!
