Segway, Inc. launched the new SE-3 Patroller three-wheeled ‘Standup Electric Vehicle’ in the US market today.
Designed for police, security patrol and public safety sectors, this new vehicle is described as “…a natural extension of Segway’s Patroller product line — an ideal match for missions that require a larger vehicle, which displays a more visible and obvious security presence (even in a parked position without a rider aboard), or that require a rider to frequently mount and dismount the vehicle during a patrol.”
“Powered by multiple rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries that can be charged at any standard electrical outlet or swapped out for replacement batteries to allow for continuous use, the SE-3 Patroller also features independent direct rear wheel drive, travels in reverse and turns in a very tight radius.”
Like the popular i2 SE Patroller and x2 SE Patroller models of self-balancing, two-wheeled Segway Personal Transporters (PTs) already in use at more than 1,500 sites around the world, the new SE-3 Patroller has been very thoughtfully designed to meet the specific needs of officers. Emergency lights, a headlight, brake lighting, siren and lockable storage are built-in. The 11cm color display is sunlight-readable and provides the rider easy-to-understand operational data including speed, battery life and distance travelled. Video recording and live-broadcasting equipment can be added, as can a range of other devices via the accessory bar and powered electrical output ports.
