Description

Having created a buzz the size of a swarm of particularly disgruntled Africanised bees, largely due to its Internet alias, Project Ginger, the Segway personal transportation device is finally here and promises to make a simple trip to the local newsagent an electrically powered treat.


The Segway has a range of 17 miles from a single charge and can turn 360 degrees on the spot. ItÂ’s also nigh on impossible to fall off one thanks to some clever electrical sensor trickery. Top speed is a nippy 12.5Mph, not bad considering the Segway tips the scales at a beefy 38kg. You might want to think twice before taking one down to your local skate ramp to show it off, though, 38kg of hi-tech transportation device landing on your leg after you unsuccessfully attempt a 360 really doesnÂ’t bear thinking about.

The Segway isnÂ’t available to the general public as yet, but email us for more info or check out www.segway.com.

    Security Segway HT comes with Intelligent Keys that work like electronic keys, storing a unique 64-bit encrypted key code that is required for the machine to start. Each Intelligent Key also stores performance attributes like maximum speed and steering sensitivity.
    Balance Sensor Assembly Five gyroscopes and two tilt sensors work together to determine orientation of the machine relative to the direction of gravity. Three-axis measurements compensate for variable terrain and are communicated to the controller boards to keep you balanced and moving safely.
    Motors Each wheel is independently driven by dual redundant, high-speed electric motors that produce no emissions and have been tested to power levels of two horsepower. Each motor is wound as two separate electrical circuits capable of independent operation, while acting as one mechanical entity. They were designed and built by Pacific Scientific, a maker of motors and electronic drives for medical, fitness, robotics, semiconductor, and other precision automation applications.
    Chassis The die-cast aluminum chassis serves as a user platform and as a protective, space-efficient housing for the motors, batteries, transmissions, and all electronic components. Lightweight aluminum acts as a heat sink for the motors and all moving parts, avoiding the need for cooling fans that would add weight, cost, and complexity.
