The Segway SE-3 has several advantages, primary among these are safety features such as rider detect and anti-rollover technology, enhanced terrain and ramp capability, the ability to travel in reverse and "charge anywhere" technology that extends range while in the field. And because it is built by Segway, it's a high-quality, reliable product that is supported by our extensive service network.
Compared to the i2 SE and x2 SE Patrollers, the SE-3 Patroller is meant for those missions specifically requiring a larger vehicle, a more obvious security presence without a rider aboard, or where an officer must frequently mount and dismount the vehicle.
The US MSRP is $12,999.
Range is dependent on many factors including terrain, riding style, payload and tire pressure to name a few. With both hot-swappable batteries and “charge anywhere” technology that allows you to top-off at any standard outlet, range can be extended indefinitely.
To change the battery module, simply flip 2 latches and slide it out. Slide in a fully charged battery module and secure the latches. The whole process takes less than a minute.
While many accessories may be powered through the 12V power outlet by the SE-3’s batteries, the effect on range depends upon the accessory and how it is used.
The SE-3 Patroller uses one battery module which consists of two 24V battery packs unlike the Segway PT, which uses two separate 72V battery packs.
No, the SE-3 does not employ the Segway PT’s dynamic stabilization technology. It is statically stable on 3 contact points.
We conducted extensive ride testing on our test track which includes a 15 degree incline - steeper than any street or auto ramp - and have had no problems.
No, speed is not governed on inclines.
The default maximum speed is 15 mph. Yes, the maximum speed can be limited to 8, 10, and 12.5 mph as well. Extensive interviews with public safety officers confirmed there is no reason to travel faster than 15 mph on the SE-3 Patroller — and most would want to set it lower
No, unlike on the Segway PT the motors do not contribute to braking, so there is no regenerative braking.
The SE-3 Patroller features mechanical turning, however, there is anti-rollover technology that reduces motor torque when the vehicle is turning quickly.
There is no traditional suspension, but the SE-3 Patroller has a large, low-pressure front tire and a cushioned comfort mat on the riding platform.
No, but the throttle is disabled if no rider is present.
The SE-3 Patroller is fairly quiet. There is a siren and pedestrian alert if needed. Of course, rider courtesy, safe driving, and awareness of surroundings are preferable to a loud noise that warns pedestrians to step aside.
Unlike the Segway PT and its InfoKey, the SE-3 Patroller uses a standard metal key.
If there is genuine interest from a large agency to do this, we will consider it.
Yes, the Accessory Bar and 12V power outlet will support several off-the-shelf accessories that may be mounted on the SE-3 Patroller. As always, we look for feedback from our customers as we expand our offerings for increased utility.
There are no plans for an armored shield at this time.
Yes, there is a chirp and siren.
Yes, there is a high intensity forward-facing LED light
At this time, there are no plans for a consumer version of the SE-3 Patroller.

The unit weighs approximately 400 pounds.
The SE-3 Patroller‘s footprint is 62” x 32” and it is 58” tall.
We designed the SE-3 Patroller with independent rear motors and gear-driven wheels.
Yes, which is another advantage over other 3-wheel products currently in the market.
There is no seat. Riders are expected to stand on the SE-3 Patroller.
Our first shipments will begin in June. There is already strong demand, so pre-order now to reduce your lead time.

The SE-3 Patroller comes with a 1-year, 3,000 mile factory warranty — whichever comes first.
Face-to-face training is not required, though our dealers understand that this a good service to provide upon delivery.
Yes. Look for more details on this soon.
The SE-3 Patroller was designed to be field serviceable by the end user or local dealers.
Like the Segway PT, the SE-3 Patroller is built in and shipped from our Bedford, NH factory.
