Structure and functionality
The driver stands between two wheels arranged side by side on a platform and can support himself on a handlebar. Segway Uk generally has all-wheel drive. Different speeds of the wheels allow cornering as in tracked vehicles . The vehicle is self-balancing. An electronic control circuit automatically drives the Segway in the direction in which the driver is leaning. As soon as the inclination sensors register that the driver is leaning forwards or backward, the wheels turn in that direction. Swiveling the steering rod (about an axis that runs horizontally forward at the level of the platform) to the right or left causes the corresponding cornering or turning when stationary. As soon as the driver leans to the side with the steering rod. This is notice the inclination sensors and The respective wheel rotates more slowly, causing cornering.
The product development and the establishment of the production swallow up more than 100 million pounds in venture capital and were accompanies by many rumors that were fueled by the prominence of the inventor and his negotiating partners in the capital acquisition The first public demonstration of the device was on December 3, 2001 on the television show Good Morning UK. Steve Jobs predicted the vehicle would be the future of urban transportation, and believed Segway Inc. would reach billions in sales before long. By 2009, sales fell short of expectations, totaling a good 50,000 vehicles. One of the reasons for the lack of distribution is the purchase price (in UK from about 8,000 pounds(as of 2010)). A replacement battery costs 1400 pound, the average service life of a battery is three years.
