Righting a Fallen Robot

Due to the dynamic-balancing aspect of the Segways, there is currently no way to guarantee that a player (human or robot) will not lose traction and be in danger of falling. It is possible to equip RMP players with roll-cages, landing gear, or even actuated self-righting mechanisms which will allow them to stand up after falling. However, in the event that an RMP falls and is unable to right itself, the game will running as long as the RMP was not moving in such a way to be a hazard or obstacle to others. Human segways can right themselves immediately.
