This Personal Transported is a two-wheeled, self-balancing, battery-powered electric vehicle.
Circuitboards, sensors, and electric motors in the base keep the device upright when powered.
The rider controls the unit to go forward or backward by shifting their weight forward or backward on the platform. Using gyroscopic sensors and leveling sensors to detect changes in its pitch angle and, to maintain balance, it drives its wheels forward or backward as needed to return its pitch to upright.
In the process, the rider establishes and then maintains a desired speed by shifting their weight forward and backward.
To turn and steer, the rider shifts the handlebar to the left or right. The unit responds by adjusting the speeds of the wheels in opposite directions causing the unit to turn.
The maximum speed of the Personal Transporter is approximately 12.5 miles per hour.
The product is capable of covering approximately 20 miles on a fully charged lithium-ion battery, depending on terrain, riding style, and the condition of the batteries.
