如果您打算買可是直覺還沒告訴您哪一台最適合,那就可以利用決策矩陣的方式。點擊下面看一個例子。

平衡車決策矩陣

如果要學會用平衡車那一定要看一下的安全學習的方法說明。它是按照我自己的學 Hovertrax 的經驗寫出來的。

學會兩輪電動自平衡車
十個步驟

電動自平衡車好玩也很方便,但是除非用得很拿手並沒那麼安全。您一定要先去安全的場所把一下的十個步驟學會再能騎在大馬路旁邊或其他有挑戰性的環境。千萬不要到大馬路邊學習。安全的場所算是運行軌跡,籃球場, 網球場, 遊樂場等等。好了好了, 開始了。

外出用車前
1.了解功能
仔細閱讀手冊和其他信息,並確保你知道如何關閉等等。
2.理解概念
一定要理解自平衡車的概念。

前傾=往前走
後傾=倒退
右腳前傾,左腳後傾=左轉
左腳前傾,右腳後傾=有轉

可以練習用您的手或坐在床上把你的腳放在自平衡車上面。

在一個安全的場所
3.上車
把一個腳放在車上面保持平衡。另一腳很快的放在上面。
4.下車
一腳走下放在車後面, 另一腳保持平衡在車上面 。
5.停車
長練習停車的方法。普通停車的方法就是後傾斜。 如果高速時要很快的停下來可以後傾斜同時往下蹲伏, 手與地面平行。要多練習看一看您在多麼短的距離能停車。Hovertrax 應該能 1米到1.5米之內停下來。
6.車削
練習專車在一個位置(一個腳前傾,另一個腳後傾) 和 轉彎 (一個腳前傾,另一個腳平衡)。
7.倒車
練習往後跑。
8.倒車時轉彎
練習往後跑同時轉彎。
9.緊急走下
在崎嶇地形上面一些自平衡車容易卡住或突然轉向所以您需要練習高速緊急走下的防法喔。注意! 要很小心,如果走下時腳下推平台車就會隨著移動。
開始的時候要往前慢慢跑,然後第一腳快速的垮到車前面, 然後 第二腳跨到最前面。

10. 速度和穩定性
當您其他的步驟完全學會了在能做高速保持穩定的測試。注意: 一些車容易突然轉向所以要特別小心。
一次接著一次您可以逐漸增加速度, 每一次更快一點。如果自平衡車的速度控制向後傾斜,或它發出噪音或震動要降低車速, 不要繼續增加速度因為如果車沒辦法更快那有跌到的危險。
高速時要往前走兩腳有儘量平衡。

摘要

1. 理解機器和概念
2. 完全學會基本的動作
3. 最後再可以學習更高級的動作

In case you plan to buy one and intuition isn’t telling you which one to go for then you can make a decision matrix using the table. A great technique if it’s done well. Click below to see an example.

Lean Machines Decision Matrix

The text below is really important if you’re going to learn to ride a self-balancing scooter. It’s based on my own experiences learning the Hovertrax.

Learning to Ride an Electric Self-balancing Scooter

Self-balancing electric foot scooters are fun and convenient but not as safe as you might think. It’s essential that you master the following steps before even considering riding beside a road, in a busy public place or other challenging environment.
When learning you will need a safe place with lots of space and a large open flat surface such as a running track, the center of a gymnasium, a tennis court or a playground.

Before going out with your scooter
1. Understand the functions
Read the manual and other information carefully and make sure you know how to turn it on, off, and so on.
2. Understand the concept
Before you hop on, be sure you understand the concept of how it works and can visualise how the angles of the feet correlate with speed and turning.
Tilt forward = go forwards.
Tilt back = go backwards.
Right tilt forwards, left back = turn left
Left tilt forwards, right back = turn right
You can practice angling and turning your hands or sit on a chair or edge of a bed putting your feet on the device while it’s switched off pretending you’re riding.

In a safe practice location
3. Getting on
Put your dominant foot level on the scooter and bring the other foot up quickly.
4. Getting off
Step off behind the scooter keeping one foot level on the platform to prevent the scooter rolling away.
5. Stopping
Practice regular stopping as well as abrupt stopping at high speeds. For high speed stopping as you tilt your feet back crouch down with hands level to the ground until you reach a stop. You should aim to be able to come to a complete stop in the shortest possible distance (about 1 to 1.5 m for the Hovertrax at near top speed).
6. Turning
Practice turning on the spot (one foot tilting back, the other tilting forward) and turning at speed (one foot level, the other tilting forward). You could use plant pots or other such objects to form a practice slalom course.
7. Reversing
Practice going backwards.
8. Reversing & turning
Practice going backwards and turning.
9. Stepping off while moving
Many foot scooters may get stuck on rough terrain. To prepare for this learn to step off while going at speed. Be extra careful because if when you step off your foot pushes down on one side of the platform the scooter will move in the corresponding direction. It could zoom out from under your feet or even back under your feet.
Go slowly in a straight line and then while moving take a quick and little step putting one foot in front of the machine resting on your toes with the heel up. Then follow with a larger step with your other foot flat on the ground. The first foot should stabilize you and stop the machine from rolling on as it goes into the sole of your shoe.
step off foot scooter 210. Speed & stability
Only once you’re ready and have fully mastered the other steps should you very carefully and very gradually have a go at seeing how fast you can go safely maintaining stability. Take multiple goes, each time increasing your speed a little more. Once the speed control tilts you back, or the device strains or wobbles then slow down right away. You must never try to increase the speed beyond this point otherwise the device may not have enough power to keep up with your leaning and you could fall.
At speed you must make absolutely sure that you keep both feet as level as possible on the platforms to keep a straight line.

Summary

  1. Understand the concepts and the machine.
  2. Try doing the basic things until they become natural.
  3. Only then progress toward the more advanced things.

領獎臺

金牌: Solowheel Orbit 和 Solowheel Extreme 贏了在三個部類不過它們也是最貴的。

銀牌: Firewheel 和 Rockwheel 表現也不錯 因為贏了在兩個部類。 (Hovertrax 贏了兩個輸了四個 - 要看那一些因素比較重要。)

銅牌: 你覺得呢?(可能是 Freeman A4。)

最近非常受歡迎的自平衡單輪車是 Gotway。 未來的對比表更新版會包括 Gotway。

Winners Podium   

Gold medal: Solowheel Orbit and Solowheel Extreme each are the winners in three categories, but they are also the most expensive.

Silver medal: Firewheel and Rockwheel also do quite well with each one winning in two categories. Hovertrax wins two categories as well but loses in four – just depends which categories are more important for you.

Bronze medal: What do you reckon? (Perhaps Freeman A4)

Update: Recently a very promising and popular eWheel has been the Gotway which will certainly appear in the next edition of this table.

建議 

我自己覺得兩輪自平衡車很好。它們更容易學所以我買了Hovertrax – 好玩, 品質也很好, 可是高速不穩定而且不適合不平衡的地。

如果經濟情況許可而且你重視專利那就可以買Inventist的車,因為他們有原來的專利。

Author’s advice

Personally I like the electric foot scooters because they’re easier to learn (apparently) so I bought Hovertrax which is great fun and very well built although it lacks stability at speed and only works well on smooth surfaces. If you have enough money and you value patent ethics you might wish to buy from Inventist seeing as they hold the patents.

新的英文的稱號 New terminology

最新發明很好不過我覺得有一些英文的稱號不好聽,因此我想提出來一些新的稱號看一看是不是好一點。

The new inventions are great, but our names for them are not. Here are some suggested names:

Electric wheel or eWheel 自平衡單輪車
Electric Foot Scooter 兩輪自平衡車
LPT (Lightweight Portable/Personal Transport)
可提的交通
Transportable 可提的交通工具

Self-Balancing Electric Wheels & Foot Scooters

New terminology suggested by the Peacemaker Foundation

The new inventions are great, but our names for them are not. Here are some suggested names:

Electric wheel or eWheel (electric self balancing “unicycle” such as the Solowheel)
Electric Foot Scooter (Self-balancing Dual Motor Electric Foot Scooter such as Hovertrax)
LPT
 (Lightweight Portable/Personal Transport: transport involving devices that can be easily carried)
Transportable (Portable transport tool)

If you can think of better names then please comment or get in touch.
