What is Segway PT ?
About Segway Personal Transporter

The Segway Personal Transporter (PT) is the first of its kind a two-wheeled, self-balancing electric personal transportation device invented by Dean Kamen and unveiled in December 2001. It is produced by Segway Inc. of New Hampshire.

The Segway PT is designed to replace larger forms of personal transportation such as automobiles. It has also been often adopted into is transportation across military bases, office buildings, university campuses or industrial sites, or neighborhoods in place of walking or bicycles. Although they're ideal for short journey, Segway PT can travel as far as 24 miles/38 km on a single battery charge, depending on terrain, payload, and riding style.

How it works

Easy to use and operate, the transportation automatically responds to glider's body movements, "sensing" when it should speed up and slow down. To move forward or backward on the Segway PT, the rider just leans slightly forward or backward. To turn left or right, the rider simply moves the LeanSteer frame left or right.

The Rider gets the sense of power and speed, yet feels a sense of safety and absolute control. It all feels natural, safe and instinctive!

Like any invention that's ahead of its time, the Segway PT is often misunderstood. The gleeful smiles of Segway PT riders may have created an impression that this is ...well...a Toy. But make no mistake. While a Segway PT is incredibly fun to ride, it is serious transportation designed for today's world.

It is perfectly ideal for innovative city cruising in any Thailand's cities.

A clean, green, eco-friendly machine

As a leader in two-wheeled electric mobility, it's always been Segway's vision to produce environmentally friendly short-distance transportation alternatives. Today, more and more people are using the Segway PT as an eco-friendly alternative for many of the short journeys that are typically made by car.

The Segway PT has many benefits for riders and the environment: less gas to buy, easier to park, and less wear on your car. It can also help reduce the impact of global warming by reducing our greenhouse gas output and consumption of imported fossil fuels.

Zero-emissions are given off during operation, allowing riders to go indoors with their Segway PT. It does draw electric power during recharge, but that electricity causes fourteen times less greenhouse gas emissions than driving a car. After one year on Segway PT riders would have literally saved a ton of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere. (in fact it's probably more than that, a ton is based on average MPG, while most short distance driving results in much lower mileage.)

When gliding on a Segway PT, riders are doing more than just shifting their consumption from petroleum to electric. Everything about the PT was designed to use electricity as efficiently as possible
