Benefits

The main benefit of the Segway HT and other types of personal transporter are the productivity gains in terms of time saved and distance traveled when compared to walking. Many of today’s office complexes that are not located in high-rise structures are often spread out over a large campus. This is particularly true for the corporate headquarters environments for many of the Fortune 500 enterprises. In these environments walking to a meeting can take five to ten minutes each way. If we assume an average of two meetings per day over the course of a year, and 20 minutes spent on the round trip to and from each meeting, that’s 160 hours per year in lost productivity per person, or just more than 8 percent of their time. If the personal transporter can cut that lost productivity in half by moving people twice as fast as walking, then that’s a productivity savings of 4 percent.
