Segway is one of the world’s leading developers of Robotics Mobility Platforms (RMPs). Its RMPs leverage the components and proprietary technology that has been deployed and tested in rugged environments across the globe as part of the durable Segway Personal Transporter (PT).
Deliberate Design & Customization
Segway’s engineers lead the product development industry in the areas of drive-by-wire technology, advanced sensing systems, dynamic stabilization and smart battery management. Their expertise is demonstrated in the simple and straightforward design of robotics platforms, which boast unmatched versatility, durability and performance.
RMP platforms are available in a variety of 2, 3 and 4 wheel configurations. All feature a flexible and intuitive user interface developed with the knowledge that simple customization and rapid integration are key features that our customers demand. The available selection of standard options allows each RMP to meet the mobility demands of most unmanned ground vehicle applications. In order to meet the needs of customers that require delivery of complete turn-key systems, custom options and full integration services are available.
Open Architecture & Easy Integration
Segway’s robust electric propulsion system coupled with a flexible user interface results in an open architecture platform. The platforms provide researchers, scientists and engineers the ability to easily integrate sensors,
manipulators, additional payloads and other third party equipment into or on top of the platform. Create advanced robotics solutions for research as well as commercial products with Segway RMPs.

Segway RMP440 LE and SE
Segway’s RMP440 is a rugged, all-terrain, four-wheel drive mobility platform. Its design empowers today’s mobile robotics developers to easily integrate their own equipment on top of the platform and build a customized application to meet their specific needs. Its specifications speak for themselves.
This configuration’s large electronics enclosure provides internal and integrated charging power supplies and delivers a charge rate of 0.6A per battery pack and a ~6-8hr. recharge time. The RMP440 LE also provides space for customer equipment within the enclosure and an auxiliary power module that drives up to 3 channels of DC output (5, 12, 24VDC).
This configuration’s small electronics enclosure offers an off-board, high current charging power supply that delivers a 2.1A charge rate per battery pack and a ~2hr. recharge time. It also has a user interface box that may be located anywhere on the chassis depending on the length of the umbilical harnesses as well as two additional channels of DC output voltage.
