The Segway PT is an invention of American Dean Kamen, who originally
designed the dynamic stabilisation for the electric wheelchair iBot. The
iBot is able to overcome stairs and to lift its physically disabled
user to eye height of a standing person.
The use of the dynamic
stabilisation for a „vehicle to be used daily by everybody“ resulted
from the vision of relieving cities from car traffic and defining
mobility anew. Steve Jobs and the Credit Suisse shared this vision and
had thus been supporting the development financially. The Segway PT has
been designed as a reputable and professional vehicle.
current second generation of the Segway PT is characterised by
high-quality technology, such as gyroscopes, acceleration sensors,
lithium-ion batteries or the wireless Info Key. The high redundancy of
the systems guarantees safe drives for over 10 years. The completely
intuitive steering of the vehicle by shifting the body weight and by use
of the Lean Steering possesses addictive potential.
Segway Personal Transporters are used primarily in the fields of security, rescue, logistics, and promotion, on golf courses and in tourism. Individuals use the Segway PT for effective operation on short distances. The vehicle is being produced in the USA. More than 100000 people around the world are using this innovative electric vehicle. In Switzerland, there are several hundred Segway PTs.
