Supply Partners Assembled to Develop Segway Human Transporter (HT)Dynamic self-balancing, electric-powered transportation machine (December 03, 2001)
From computer hardware and software to rubber compounds and battery chargers, the Segway HT's component parts are the products of the most innovative experts in the transportation and technology fields. The technologies required to make the Segway HT possible include contributions from many leading companies, including Delphi Automotive Systems, GE Plastics, Michelin North America, Inc., Pacific Scientific, Saft and Silicon Sensing Systems.
"To bring a product like the Segway HT to market you need to have world-class supply partners with incredible vision -- and we've brought together just such a team," said Dean Kamen, Segway's chairman and the man with the technological vision behind the human transporter. "Each of these partners played a critical role in making the Segway Human Transporter possible."
The Supply Partners include:
-- Delphi Automotive Systems (http://www.delphiauto.com), a leader in mobile electronics and transportation components and systems technology, assisted in the development of the Segway HT's circuit boards and user interface components, which are key electronic system elements used to control the human transporter.
-- GE Plastics (http://www.geplastics.com), a leading global manufacturer of high performance engineering thermoplastics, provided Segway with a host of durable and environmentally friendly materials for the human transporter. Segway HT is the first commercial application for its game-changing SOLLX polymer, a weather and chemical resistant film that offers an alternative to paint.
