Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/055882
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A centerless wheel assembly may include a centerless rim configured to rotate about a point. The centerless wheel assembly may also include a centerless flywheel that may be configured to indirectly couple with the centerless rim and to rotate about a point. The centerless wheel assembly may additionally include a device for rotating the centerless rim in a first direction and in a second direction. The centerless wheel assembly may also include a one-way bearing that may be disposed between the centerless rim and the centerless flywheel. The one-way bearing may be positioned such that as the centerless rim may rotate in the first direction, the centerless flywheel may be caused to rotate in the first direction and as the centerless rim may rotate in the second direction, the centerless flywheel may not be caused to rotate.
