Segway and General Motors have come together, resulting in the Personal Urban Mobility and Accessibility Project, which aims to provide a self-balancing two wheeled vehicle that bears two communities to speeds of 35 mph, which is almost three times faster than the Segway of 12 mph top speed, with a 35 mile range to start. It is powered by a lithium battery, while boasting a built-communication device that can talk with other vehicles near a further reduction of the risk.
The PUMA concept vehicle attempts to reinvent the automobile sector, through the marriage of electric vehicles, such as the Segway Personal Transporter, two wheeled, single passenger vehicle with the machinery, said Burns. The aim is to renegotiate how we move, how we interact, towns and cities. PUMA is not only a desire to reduce congestion, Norrod said, because cities are saddled with CO2 emissions, noise and a shortage of parking spaces.
