    Segway: The New Way To Get Around

    Introduced in 2001, the Segway PT is a two-wheeled, self-balancing electric vehicle. Computers and motors in the base of the device keep the Segway PT upright when powered on. When the device is turned off, it cannot balance on its own and needs to be appropriately parked or leaned against a wall. A user can control the Segway to go forward by shifting his/her weight forward on the platform, and backward by shifting weight backward. Gyroscopic sensors and fluid-based leveling sensors are used to detect the shifting weight and hence the Segway moves in the desired direction. To turn the device left/right, the user manipulates the handlebar left or right
