The Segway Human Transporters are zero-emissions, electric transportation devices that go up to 24 miles on a single battery charge and cost only pennies per mile to operate. The light electric transportation devices travel 8 mph and use embedded intelligent motion control technology, called Smart Motion. Smart Motion provides intelligent motion control that enables a device to monitor its environment, control its motion and make decisions about how it should move.
The technology is also licensed for use in other products made by third-party companies. The company's line of Segway Robotic Mobility Platforms offer researchers, government and military organizations intelligent, reliable, durable mobility solutions for robotic applications.
The multi-year finance agreement allows customers to buy Segway's transporters and accessories with monthly payments, beginning Thursday, under GE's FUNancing Card program.
