Research and Development for Universities

Segway ground robot platforms are the ideal starting point for applications used in research and development at universities. Segway’s RMPs are designed with simplicity in mind, which means that universities will have the freedom to choose and integrate the best hardware for their specific application.

For example, a university that is currently using Segway RMPs in their research and development studies is the University of Philadelphia’s School of Engineering and Applied Science.

They have designed the PhillieBot, which is a one armed, three-wheeled robot built atop a Segway RMP 200. The PhillieBot has recently thrown the opening pitch at a Philadelphia Phillies game. To learn more about the PhillieBot, check out the video below.
