Many heavyweight guests and media witnessed the application results of innovative technology, and also impressed by the unprecedented amazing experience brought by the Segway Robot to human life.

The Segway Robot is supported by Segway’s self-balancing vehicle technology to extend and expand human ability on the premise of fulfilling transportation task. Artificial intelligence system is installed on the self-balancing vehicle to realize look, listening and speaking skills by Intel’s powerful computing unit and a variety of sensors, such as RealSense depth perception sensor and microphone array sensor. If we bring the Segway Robot to our daily life, then we will find a new self or an alternative, just like the extension of the body, we can do whatever we want.

The Segway robot can be programmed out-of-the-box to solve many complex problems with its state-of-art camera and suite of other sensors. Notably, it is integrated with the latest Intel RealSense camera which will allow the developers to collect depth information, forming a better interpretation of the 3D world. The Segway robot offers cutting-edge innovation at an affordable price.
To support the Segway Robot and advance innovation in the personal robotic field, Segway has entered into an joint engineering and strategic alliance with Intel and Xiaomi. Brian Krzanich, CEO of Intel, calls this “the beginning of a creative new ecosystem.” The launch of the Segway Robot announces the arrival of a new era in the field of robotics.

Segway plans to make the robot commercially available and will initially introduce a developer kit based on Android platform in second half of this year. Developers worldwide will be able to use this SDK to allow the robot to perform new applications and to interact with other devices.
