Who are Segway.?
Segway electric scooters are here to stay. Inventor Dean Kamen once saw a young man in a wheelchair struggling to get over a sidewalk. He thought the problem wasn’t an ineffective wheelchair. But rather it was that the world was built for people who could balance. Subsequently, he and his team put together the Independence IBOT™️ Mobility System. This is a self-balancing mobility device that enables users to climb stairs and negotiate uneven surfaces. Then he thought that a balance machine had far-reaching possibilities for people with full mobility as well.
The name Segway came from the word segue, which is “to transition smoothly from one state to another”. Segway transforms a person into an empowered pedestrian, allowing him or her to go farther, move more quickly and carry more.
The Self-Balancing Segway Electric Scooters Technology
If you stand up and lean forward, you won’t fall on your face just like that. Your brain knows you are out of balance, because fluid in your inner ear shifts. It triggers you to put your leg forward and stop a possible fall.
The Segway electric scooter technology does pretty much the same thing, except that our vehicles have wheels instead of legs, a motor instead of muscles, a collection of microprocessors instead of a brain and a set of sophisticated tilt sensors and gyroscopic sensors instead of an inner-ear balancing system. Like your brain, a Segway product knows when you are leaning forward. To maintain balance, it turns the wheels at just the right speed and you’ll move forward.
