ANSWER: The Segway PT is powered by two electric motors which are powered by rechargeable batteries. The motors allow the wheels to rotate independently. The control module of the Segway PT constantly monitors the status of the device using sensors based on MEMS gyro. By controlling the electric motor automatically , the Segway PT will remain in balance regardless of speed or weight of the carried luggage.
ANSWER: The user controls the device by moving the body weight. By leaning forward, the Segway PT move forward and by leaning backwards allowed to ride him backwards. He stops if you stand upright. Steering is done by the steering column iff you push it left or right it either moves in that direction "Segway calls this a lean steer" if you push it all the way left or right you can make a circle of 360 degrees at the site.
ANSWER: The Segway PT has a built-in speed limiter. our Segway PTs feature two modes: the 12 km mode is the turtle mode, that we use for our tours we think the Segway is used at just a good enough speed in this mode it is more stable.
