The Segway PT (personal transporter) is a two-wheeled, self-balancing electric vehicle. Computers and motors in the base of the device keep the Segway PT upright. Users lean forward to go forward, lean back to go backward, and turn by using a ‘Lean Steer’ handlebar, leaning it left or right. Segway PTs are driven by electric motors at up to 12 mph. Gyroscopic sensors are used to detect tilting of the device which indicates a departure from perfect balance. Motors driving the wheels are commanded as needed to bring the PT back into balance
