  • 1. Presented by, ROOPESH.K 3 rd Semester MCA Roll.No: 5 ITEC, Kasaragod SEGWAY HUMAN TRANSPORTER SEMINAR ON
  • 2.
    • A two-wheeled, self-balancing electric vehicle.
    • Invented by Dean Kamen.
    • Capable of transporting a single passenger.
    • Driven by electric motors at up to 12.5 miles per hour .
    • Mimics the human walk.
    • It has no break.
    INTRODUCTION
  • 3. TECHNOLOGY
    • The Segway PT is built to stay balanced in one place.
    • It balances with the help of..
        • dual computers running proprietary software,
        • two tilt sensors,
        • five gyroscopes.
    • Changes from a balanced status are first detected by the gyroscopes.
    • signals are passed on to the onboard computers.
    • direct motors to regain balance.
    • This process occurs about 100 times per second.
  • 4.
    • GYROSCOPE
    • A gyroscope is a device for measuring or maintaining orientation, based on the principles of conservation of angular momentum. A mechanical gyroscope is essentially a spinning wheel or disk whose axle is free to take any orientation. Within mechanical systems or devices, a conventional gyroscope is a mechanism comprising a rotor journalled to spin about one axis, the journals of the rotor being mounted in an inner gimbal or ring, the inner gimbal is journalled for oscillation in an outer gimbal which is journalled in another gimbal. So basically there are three gimbals.It use the Coriolis effect to measure rotation speed.
    • BSA (Balance Sensor Assembly).
    • Servo Drive.
    • Motor.
    • Controller Boards.
    • Rider Detection Sensor.
    • Wheel and Tire.
    • Batteries.
    BASIC COMPONENTS
  • 5.
    • The first announced customer is the US Postal Service.
    • Another potential use is large factory floor.
    • The Segway could function as a simple transportation device, or as a delivery vehicle for light industrial inventory.
    • Various models
    • – Police, Cross Terrain, Commuter, Golf, etc
    REAL APPLICATIONS
  • 6.
    • Become more reliable and recognizable.
      • Riders stand an additional eight inches off the ground, allowing you to be better seen and giving the rider better sight lines, over cars in a parking lot or boxes in a warehouse.
    • Low operating cost.
      • no need for gas , easy battery charging
    • A reliable, durable tool.
      • performs in nearly every environmental
    • A clean, green machine.
    • Environmentally friendly.
    • Zero emissions.
      • allowing you to go indoors with your Segway PT.
    BENEFITS
    • reduction of greenhouse gases.
    • reduce the impact of global warming.
    • Reduce consumption of imported fossil fuels .
    • shifting your consumption from petroleum to electric.
  • 7.
    • People with physical disabilities that prevent operation of an auto but not a Segway; people living on fixed incomes or those needing to cut expenses; environmentally-concerned people wishing to improve air quality or overcrowding in their community;
