Amongst a crowd of more than 7,000 people, the Segway Personal Transporters (PTs) played key roles in:
- patrolling fence lines, where the public try to climb over to enter without paying.
- regularly and securely ferrying cash from the ticketing gate to a distant building where the money safe was located
- responding rapidly to on-site incidents
Segway’s i2 SE and x2 SE ‘Patroller’ models are specially designed to work hard in security deployments. They stand out in the crowd with hi-viz shields and flashing lights, and feature carefully designed cargo carrying capabilities suited to the needs of security staff. On Segway Patrollers, staff can make their way through crowds more quickly and more safely than by other methods (bicycle, golf cart, etc).
