Segway in General
  • created with to wheels and a plat form for the
    person to stand on
  • goes 12 mph and on average cost 5,000 dollars

4
Gyroscopes
  • wheel like device
  • help maintain a steady position on the scooter no
    matter which way it moves or how fact it is going

5
Motor
  • Segway has highest powered motor for its size
  • Uses magnets to go

6
Motor
  • There are 2 motors
  • If 1 fails the other kicks in

7
Gears
  • Number of gears made to minimize noise
  • each revolution the gears land in a different
    place

8
Rubber Diaphragms
  • The rubber Diaphragms is the balancing system

9
Rubber Diaphragms
  • Controlled so when you step of the platform the
    segway stops

10
Chassis
  • The chassis is the frame and it houses the inner
    electronics

11
Chasis
  • chasis is tested to stand 7 tons

12
Tilt Sensors
  • Detects movement forward and backwards

13
Computer Procesor
  • Mimic human equilibrium

14
Computer Processor
  • Makes movement equal to our movement

15
Computer Processor
  • The equilibrium is the influence on something
    that cancels it out

16
Tires
  • Tubeless tires
  • resistant to flats
  • traction on wet surfaces
  • leaves no marks indoors

17
Security Code

    from the sensors

19
Sisterboards
  • If one fails the other sisterboards takes over

20
Batteries
  • There are 2 types of batteries
  • NiCd and NiMh
  • battery rechargeble by electricity

21
Control Shaft
  • Steering wheel of the scooter
  • Made of diecast aluminum
  • Adjustable to ones height

22
Turning Control
  • The turning control makes the Segway have a
    turning radius of zero

23
User Interface
  • Tells when the machine is on
  • what mode it is in
  • how much battery life is left

24
Segway Facts
  • 0.10 for 6 hours of electricity to charge the
    Segway

25
Segway Facts
  • The Segway has no brakes

26
Segway Facts
  • The United States Postal Service will be testing
