How the INMOTION SCV Works
The INMOTION SCV works like the human body. When walking, if you lean forward, you take a step forward to keep your
balance. If you lean back, you step back. On an INMOTION SCV when you lean forward or back the machine powers the Wheels
in the direction that you lean.
The INMOTION SCV uses dynamic stabilization technology and applies a gyroscope, sensors, and a Permanent Magnet
Synchronous Motor (PMSM) to maintain its balance and move forward or backward.
When you pivot the Turning Shaft to the left, the INMOTION SCV turns left. When you pivot the Turning Shaft to the right,
the INMOTION SCV turns right. To turn the INMOTION SCV, point the Turning Shaft in the direction you want to go, keeping
the Handlebar in line with your body. When the Turning Shaft is centered, the INMOTION SCV travels straight ahead.

2.8.1. Introduction
Important Working Modes:
Working Mode
Standby
Description
The INMOTION SCV is in Standby Mode by default. Most of the other modes will be started from
Standby Mode.
Balance
Indicates the INMOTION SCV has detected a rider and the footboard angle is moderate. Training Mode
and Speed Mode can be activated from Balance Mode. Read Section 3 for more information.
Auto Balance
When a rider steps onto the INMOTION SCV and the footboard angle is moderate (between 2° and
15°), the system will start to level the footboard. In the meantime, the INMOTION SCV may travel a
short distance either backward or forward in order to balance itself. An excessive or too small angle will
trigger an error warning.
Excessive Angle
When a rider steps onto the INMOTION SCV and the footboard angle is too big, the INMOTION SCV
will vibrate to warn the rider to slowly level the footboard.
Self-check
The INMOTION SCV will examine and calibrate itself in Self-check Mode. Read Section 3.6 for more
information.
27 / 68
Error
If the INMOTION SCV detects an error or a system fault during normal riding conditions it will
automatically reduce the speed and slowly stop. The Tires will be locked if it needs extra assistance to
solve the problem. Once the Tires are locked, please contact your local distributor for maintenance
service.
Assist Mode
Under Assist Mode, the INMOTION SCV will provide a small amount of power to allow the SCV to be
easily dragged. You can choose different reference points when entering Assist Mode. For more
information about Assist Mode, please refer to Section 3.4 Assist Mode.
Remote Control
Remote Control Mode can be started from your Smartphone App. The INMOTION SCV can receive

2.10. Communication and Charging Port
Connect your smartphone with the INMOTION SCV by using the INMOTION App, (App is not considered part of the
INMOTION SCV product.)
2.10.1. Wi- Fi
The INMOTION SCV can communicate with smartphones via Wi-Fi, and can work under both client and AP mode. When in
client mode, the INMOTION SCV will work just like a network card on your computer or phone. If in AP mode, the INMOTION
SCV will turn into a wireless AP and wait for a smartphone to connect to it.
A Wi-Fi AP list will be created and saved in the system— this list is empty when the INMOTION SCV leaves the factory.
When starting up, the INMOTION SCV will automatically search nearby APs and try to match with an entry in the AP list. If
there is a match, the INMOTION SCV will connect to the recognized AP; if no match is found, the INMOTION SCV will switch
to AP mode and wait for other devices to connect. For the first startup, the INMOTION SCV will only start in AP mode since the
AP list is empty. The SSID of the INMOTION SCV under AP mode is INMOTION-XXXXXXXX by default, the password is
INMOTION123. XXXXXXX is a fixed serial number and both the SSID and password can be modified in the Smartphone App.
Wi-Fi will shut down after 10 minutes if there are no external devices connected to the INMOTION SCV when it is powered
off. Wi-Fi will be operating again when the INMOTION SCV is powered on.

3. Riding Your INMOTION SCV
3.1.
Riding Guidelines
The INMOTION SCV is a high-tech sensor controlled vehicle. If you try to ride the INMOTION SCV without familiarizing
yourself with the riding guidelines, you could cause damage to the device, or seriously injure yourself. This section describes how
to ride the INMOTION SCV properly. It discusses riding for the first time and helpful hints for all riders.
3.1.1. Safety Cautions
The following steps will help you to learn to ride your INMOTION SCV. It is important that you practice riding in a
controlled, familiar environment until you are comfortable using your INMOTION SCV and SmartKey. Before riding, make sure
your INMOTION SCV is properly assembled and fully charged. Inspect your INMOTION SCV before each use. Do not ride if
any part is loose or damaged. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry that could get caught in the INMOTION SCV.
3.1.2. Prepare for Riding
To prepare for your first ride:
●
Select an appropriate area for your first ride. The area
may be indoors or outdoors and should measure at least 4
meters by 4 meters (12 feet by 12 feet). It must have a level,
smooth riding surface with good traction, and the area should
be free of obstructions and far from vehicles, bicycles, pets,
small children, and other distractions.
●
Do not select a slippery area for your first ride.
35 / 68
●
Get a helper who is familiar with the INMOTION SCV and who has studied all the instructions and warnings in this
manual.
●
Wear a helmet.
●
Move the INMOTION SCV to the center of the riding area.
●
Adjust the Handlebar to suit your height.
3.1.3. Powering On the INMOTION SCV
●
Power on your INMOTION SCV by pressing the Power Button (A) located at the top of the SmartKey.
●
You will hear a Voice Prompt from the INMOTION SCV that indicates the INMOTION SCV is in Training Mode
(please make sure the INMOTION SCV is in Training Mode for your first ride), and an icon will appear on the LED Screen to
indicate that the power is ON and the INMOTION SCV is in Standby Mode.
●
Do not step onto the INMOTION SCV yet! Your INMOTION SCV is powered on, but it is not balancing.
36 / 68
3.1.4. Stepping On
●
Before you attempt to step on for the first time, have your helper stand facing you in front of the INMOTION SCV,
holding the Handlebar securely with both hands. Your helper should be prepared to firmly hold the INMOTION SCV to keep it
from moving. Make sure the Footboard Mat is level.
●
Hold the Handlebar with both hands, and as you step up, look straight ahead and not down.
●
Put one foot on the Footboard Mat.
●
Slowly transfer your weight to the foot on the Footboard Mat.
●
Once you hear a Voice Prompt from the INMOTION SCV, raise your back foot off the ground and slowly place it on the
Footboard Mat while avoiding moving the Handlebar. Stay calm and relaxed. Look forward. Some people rock back and forth
involuntarily when they first step on. The helper should hold the Handlebar firmly.
●
If you feel unstable, step off the INMOTION SCV one foot at a time, and pause before stepping back on. The helper
should continue holding firmly the entire time, and be prepared to keep the INMOTION SCV from moving as you step on or off.
37 / 68
If you are standing on the INMOTION SCV now, please keep the Footboard Mat horizontal and stand still. Do not move
before you are familiar with it.
3.1.5. Moving Forward and Backward
The INMOTION SCV moves forward and backward in response to changes in your position. When standing on the
Footboard Mat, to move forward or backward:
●
With your helper available to assist you, slowly lean forward and
feel the INMOTION SCV move forward. Then stop leaning forward and
feel it slow down and stop. Do this a few times.
●
Avoid rocking back and forth or shifting your weight abruptly,
as this could result in a loss of traction and cause a fall.
●
Look behind you and then slowly lean back and feel the
INMOTION SCV move backward. Then stop leaning back and feel it
slow down and stop. Do this a few times.
●
You should not ride backward as part of your normal riding process. Because of the lack of a rear view and direction changes
of the turning centrifugal force, riding backward could cause unpredictable falls. Instead, turn and ride forward.
With your helper standing close by, practice going forward and backward a short distance in each direction. Be careful not to
run the Wheels into any objects or go too fast. This could cause you to fall.
38 / 68
3.1.6. Stopping
Stop the INMOTION SCV by shifting your weight away from the direction you are moving. To
stop the INMOTION SCV:
●
When you are moving forward, gently shift your hips back (as if you are preparing to sit
down) to bring the INMOTION SCV to a stop.
●
Once stopped, center your weight over the Footboard Mat to remain stationary. If you
continue to lean back, you will move backward.
●
Practice choosing a spot on the ground, and coming to a smooth controlled stop at that spot.
Then remain stationary.
●
Avoid abrupt stops and slippery surfaces. Stopping abruptly, especially on slippery surfaces,
can cause the INMOTION SCV’s tires to lose traction, and you could fall.
Please avoid abrupt stops. Always perform a controlled stop by gently shifting your weight away from the direction of
movement.
Avoid slippery surfaces. The INMOTION SCV’s Tires could lose traction causing you to fall.
39 / 68
3.1.7. Turning the INMOTION SCV
The INMOTION SCV turns in the direction that you lean the Handlebar. You turn the INMOTION SCV by leaning the
Handlebar left or right.
●
First, practice turning in place. To turn in place, slowly pivot the Handlebar in the direction that you want to turn. The
INMOTION SCV will rotate so that you turn in place.
●
After you are comfortable going forward and backward and turning in place, try slowly riding forward and turning at the
same time. Keep your body leaning in the direction of the turn, and in coordination with the angle of the Turning Shaft while
turning.
●
Because abrupt turns can be dangerous, always lean into turns slowly and smoothly.
Do not ride crosswise or turn on a slope, or it will cause balance angle shifting and thus be dangerous.
40 / 68
3.1.8. Stepping Off
When you are ready to step off the INMOTION SCV for the first time, your helper should hold the Handlebar. To step off
the INMOTION SCV:
●
Remain stationary by keeping your weight centered over the Wheels and Footboard Mat and keep the Handlebar vertical.
Step off the INMOTION SCV slowly, one foot at a time.
●
After you have stepped off, continue to hold the Handlebar for about a second. You can lean the INMOTION SCV
backward and park it when you hear a tone.
Do not pull the Turning Shaft backward when stepping off. It may make the SCV move backward, causing unpredictable
damage. While getting off, do not lean the Handlebar forward or it will move forward if you haven’t completely moved your weight
off.
Practice stepping off for the first time with your helper standing close by.
41 / 68
3.1.9. Securing Your INMOTION SCV
The INMOTION SCV provides you with a Lock Mode in case you need to leave your INMOTION SCV unattended. When
the INMOTION SCV is in Lock Mode:
●
If anyone tries to move or shake the INMOTION SCV, it will trigger the warning alert and SCV body vibration.
●
The Tires will be locked to make it difficult to move your INMOTION SCV.
●
The system will exit Lock Mode and shut off after four hours to save energy.
●
●
Lock Mode is intended for use when you remain in close proximity to the INMOTION SCV, and are able to respond to
an alarm. The best way to discourage tampering with your INMOTION SCV is to keep it in a secure indoor location with the
SmartKey stored separately.
3.1.10. Powering Off the INMOTION SCV
3.2.
●
Power off the INMOTION SCV by pressing the Power Button (A) on the SmartKey.
●
The display on the SmartKey will show an icon and shut off.
Practice Riding
You will need to become very familiar with your INMOTION SCV before you attempt to ride outside of your controlled
practice environment. The more you practice, the safer you will be when you move into new places. Remember the following as
you practice:
●
Use Training Mode and ride in areas free of obstacles and distractions until you are comfortable on your INMOTION
SCV. Practice at the Training level until you can step on, ride forward and backward, turn, stop, and step off with the same
42 / 68
precision and confidence as you walk.
3.3.
●
With practice, you should be able to ride in narrow areas. Make sure you leave enough wheel clearance.
●
Until you can ride with this precision, do not attempt to ride outdoors.
●
Use caution when riding in new environments.
●
Be careful when riding through doorways.
●
Watch out for terrain transitions such as pavement to grass.

Assist Mode
In Assist Mode, the system will provide appropriate power to help the rider drag the INMOTION SCV when unwilling or
unable to ride the SCV. Assisting Function works as below:
●
Assist Mode is activated at any angle, and the INMOTION SCV is able to turn around in a complete circle on the
ground.
●
The INMOTION SCV shifts to Speed Mode when either side of the Footboard Mat is stepped on.
●
Assist Mode is disabled and Sleep Mode is activated when the rider is leaning or shaking the Turning Shaft forward and
backward at high frequency.
●
Assist Mode is disabled and Sleep Mode is activated after 2 minutes of taking no action.
See Section 2.6 SmartKey for more information on how to activate Assist Mode.
3.5.
Remote Control
The INMOTION SCV is just like a robot in Remote Control Mode. It can go forward, backward, turn, and stop with orders
from the INMOTION App with Auto Walk function.
The INMOTION SCV will stand up automatically (get itself into a balance status when it is laid back) under Manual Control
Mode when the INMOTION SCV and your App are linked. Now you can easily control your INMOTION SCV by toggling the
buttons in the directions you want the SCV to go.
Avoid using the Remote Control Mode on slippery and wet surfaces. It may result in your Wheels slipping and could cause
serious injury or damage.
Activate the Remote Control Mode in an open area.
Be careful and avoid pedestrians and obstacles.
44 / 68
3.6.
Self-check Mode
Self-check Mode allows you to run a thorough examination of your INMOTION SCV to see if any parameters have shifted
after a period of operation. The INMOTION SCV will run tests under Self-check Mode and store the resulting data. Refer to
Section 2.7 Info LED and Voice Prompt for more information. The following chart shows which items are detected in
Self-check Mode:
Item
Steer Balance
Description
Run the Steer Balance calibration if you detect that your INMOTION SCV leans in an incorrect
direction when it stands in balance.
Footboard Mat Sensor
Calibrate the Footboard Mat sensors to level up the sensitivity.
RTC Time
Adjust time with the assistance of GPRS and GPS*.
Activate Self-check Mode in an open area.

Make sure the Handlebar is vertical. Do not pull the Turning Shaft or hold the Handlebar.
Do not place anything on the Footboard Mat, including your feet.
Doing so could interfere with the result of Self-check, causing injury or damage.
45 / 68
3.7.
Safety Alerts
The INMOTION SCV is equipped with multiple safety alerts. It is important to understand these alerts before you attempt to
ride your INMOTION SCV.
3.7.1. Speed Limiter
When you approach the maximum allowed speed for a given situation, the INMOTION SCV will push the handlebar back to
slow you down. The following figure shows the process of speed limiter.
When the INMOTION SCV pushes the handlebar back, stop leaning forward and slow down. Always leave a gap between
yourself and the handlebar to ensure safety and a smoothly ride. When you slow down, INMOTION SCV will balance itself
according to your body movements.
46 / 68
Continuing to accelerate and ride against the Handlebar could cause injury or damage from loss of control, collisions, and
falls.
The speed at which the handlebar pushes back depends on a variety of factors including set-up speed limiter, terrain, payload,
and battery condition. The below list shows conditions that will trigger the speed limiter.
Continuous climbing
Motor temperature
Riding on bumpy roads
High Circuit temperature
The moment it powers on
Battery temperature too high or too low
Low battery
Continuous descending
3.7.2. Safe Stop
If the INMOTION SCV detects severe faults or restrictions (such as being
outside the specified riding range), it performs a Safety Shutdown.
When a Safety Shutdown occurs, the INMOTION SCV automatically
reduces its speed, gives the Shaft Shake Warning (shakes the handlebar and
makes growling noises), and emits a warning tone.
You have approximately 14 seconds from the start of a Safety Shutdown
to come to a controlled stop and step off. After 14 seconds, the INMOTION
SCV will immediately shut down when the Wheels reach zero speed.
47 / 68
Never restart and ride your INMOTION SCV after it has indicated an empty Battery or performed a Safety Shutdown due to
low Battery. The INMOTION SCV may not have enough power to keep you balanced, especially if you accelerate, which requires
more power.
If you restart and continue riding after a Safety Shutdown due to low Battery, you risk falling. Also, you risk damaging your
Battery Pack, resulting in reduced Battery life and capacity.
3.7.3. Shaft Vibration Warning
One of the ways that the INMOTION SCV notifies you when you are at risk of falling is by vibrating and releasing a
warning sound.
The following chart shows situations that trigger a Shaft Shake Warning, and recommended actions:
Possible Causes
Riding aggressively, accelerating or stopping
Recommended Action
Ride smoothly.

Environmental Factors Affecting the Vehicle’s Performance
3.8.1. Riding Distance
Riding distance per charge is greatly influenced by riding habits and environmental factors. The following chart shows
factors that have great influence:
Factors
Road Condition
Possible Causes
Riding the INMOTION SCV on flat roads will increase riding distance per charge. On the contrary,
riding on hillsides or steep slopes will decrease riding distance.
Speed and Riding Habits
Riding the INMOTION SCV with constant speed will increase riding distance per charge. Stepping
on and off and speeding up and slowing down frequently will decrease riding distance.
Load
Riding the INMOTION SCV with a light cargo load will increase riding distance per charge.
Temperature
Riding the INMOTION SCV in cold weather will decrease riding distance per charge. The
INMOTION SCV performs most efficiently when it is close to the center of the recommended riding
temperature range.
Battery Condition
Keeping the Battery in a good condition will increase riding distance per charge. Using an old,
overloaded or poorly maintained Battery Pack will significantly decrease riding distance.
Wind Direction
Riding with the wind behind you will increase riding distance per charge.
3.8.2. Riding in High Temperatures
The temperature of the components (including the Motor, Battery Pack, Riding System, etc.) is raised when riding the
INMOTION SCV in warm weather. This could affect the INMOTION SCV’s service life. If the components get excessively hot
(≥50℃) while riding the INMOTION SCV will slow down automatically. The hotter the components are, the lower the speed
49 / 68
will be. If the components get very hot (≥80℃) while riding, the INMOTION SCV may activate a safety alert. You should stop
riding immediately and wait until the components cool off before you continue your ride.
3.8.3. Riding in Cold Temperatures
Too low temperatures will deteriorate component lubrication and increase resistance. Also the battery discharge capability
and capacity will decrease dramatically in a low temperature environment. Avoid applying drastic actions with your INMOTION
SCV in cold temperatures (≤-5℃), or you could cause the INMOTION SCV to lose control, and you could fall.
3.8.4. Climbing
When the INMOTION SCV is climbing, the inner temperature will increase, especially during long periods of continuous
climbing. Even though the system will slow your speed while climbing, we still suggest you avoid long periods of continuous
climbing.
3.8.5. Descending
The INMOTION SCV will collect energy while descending, and the motor will work as a power generator and store
electricity in the Battery Pack. Thus continuous descents will allow you to travel longer distances on one charge.
When the battery is full, charging the battery this way could cause damage to the battery, therefore the system will
automatically lower the max speed to reduce the possibility of excessive charging.
