Gyro drive

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gyro drive of a gyrobus from 1955

A gyro drive is a type of drive in which an accelerated flywheel (also called “ rotor ” in this context ) is used to store energy for the drive. Most gyro drives use electricity to convert the rotor's energy into propulsion energy. However, systems are also being developed that use mechanical energy directly .
