This is one of the most frequently asked questions we get when we are doing a Zero G Touring Downtown or Forest Park Tour. It is also one of the toughest to answer. Here is the basic explanation in layman’s terms.
A Segway Personal Transporter is a two wheeled vehicle designed and built specifically to carry a person in an urban environment. When Dean Kamen unveiled the Segway in 2001 it was hailed as one of the biggest innovations in transportation since the automobile or the bicycle. It’s technology as a number of different applications around the world, including a wheelchair that can climb stairs. The Segway has been used by police and security forces from parking attendants to mall and airport security. Our favorite application, though, is providing Segway Tours.
A Segway is powered by two large lithium-ion batteries. The most incredible part of the Segway is how it balances. It was designed to mechanize the normal human balance functions. Think about it! The way you balance and move forward is that little “sensors” inside your inner ear tell your brain and your body whether you are standing straight up or going to fall over. When you want to walk, you lean forward and your feet come out from under you to catch up and keep you upright… thus moving you forward.
The Segway does the same thing! There are little sensors and computers at the base of the machine that take readings on where your body weight is. If you lean forward, the wheels drive forward in order to keep you upright and balanced. It is also built with a number of redundant systems to make sure that no matter what, the Segway will never shut off or throw you off unexpectedly. Not only do you get to see a St. Louis Tour but you get to see it on a Segway!
