DESCRIPTION
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The general field of the invention is that of mobile vehicles and, a lot of notably, those vehicles called unicycles. within the general field of unicycles there ar those that ar operated by movable pedals that the rider moves in circular ways along with his feet, et al. that ar operated by power, and therefore the invention relates to unicycles of the latter kind.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The invention provides a monocycle wheel having {a mounted|a hard and fast|a set} unit with external diametrically extending fixed pedals on it on that the rider stands, a mobile ground participating unit that with the mounted unit forms a hollow body, power operated suggests that for rotating the mobile unit disposed among the hollow body and being operative by movement of the pedals to manage the direction and speed of rotation of the mobile unit and thus the movement of the vehicle on the bottom surface.

DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
FIG. one could be a horizontal diametrical read, partially in section, of the monocycle wheel provided by the invention;

FIG. two could be a aspect elevational read of the monocycle wheel, and

FIG. three could be a sectional read taken on line 3–3 of FIG. two showing the driving suggests that in elevation and together with a circuit diagram of the suggests that for energizing the driving suggests that.

DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
The monocycle wheel includes a hollow body having a hard and fast unit having laterally spaced pedals that supports the rider, and a mobile ground-engaging unit that is mounted on the mounted unit. The mounted unit includes a circular plate two having a pedal four mounted to its outer surface and lengthening diametrically thence and a shaft half dozen that extends at a right angle to the plate from the middle of the plate within the direction far from pedal four, and has second pedal eight mounted on its outer finish. The mobile unit of the wheel includes a cupulate body having a flat, circular bottom ten that is parallel to and spaced from the mounted plate two at a grip simply inboard the pedal eight. A cylindrical peripheral wall twelve extends from very cheap plate ten toward mounted plate two and terminates in a very peripheral edge adjacent the edge of the mounted plate. The mounted and mobile units kind a hollow body having a mobile peripheral wall twelve that engages the bottom surface within the use and operation of the monocycle wheel and having usually horizontally disposed co-planar pedals on the other sides of the hollow body on that the rider stands. The pedals and plate two ar mounted for lengthways rocking movement with relevance the mobile unit, as illustrated in FIG. two and as are going to be delineate a lot of totally. The mobile unit is rotatably mounted on shaft half dozen by suggests that of a cylindrical hollow shaft twelve that extends inside of the hollow body from the middle of plate ten in encompassing respect to mounted shaft half dozen and on its outer finish, among the hollow body, has associate degree integrally shaped gear fourteen having external peripheral teeth sixteen. a control sleeve eighteen is interposed between shafts half dozen and twelve. A cylindrical hollow shaft nineteen extends inside of the hollow body from the middle of the mounted plate two and at its outer finish engages the external wall of drugs wheel fourteen to feature stability to the whole unit.

Means ar provided by the invention for inflicting rotation of the mobile unit on and with relevance the mounted unit, and such suggests that comprise a reversing motor thirty having coil thirty two on that a turbinate gear thirty four is provided that meshes with the peripheral teeth sixteen on gear fourteen. can|it’ll} be apparent that energization of motor thirty will cause rotation of the mobile unit through the delineate gears, with resulting movement of the monocycle on the bottom surface.

Means ar provided among the hollow wheel for energizing the motor thirty in 2 directions of rotation so as to maneuver the vehicle forward and reversely. Such suggests that ar notably disclosed in FIG. three of the drawings and comprise a switch contact rod forty that is connected to the shaft half dozen and extends vertically upward therefrom and will thus rock thereupon shaft. higher than the shaft half dozen the rod forty is given a hoop switch contact member forty two that is insulated from rod forty and adjacent that mounted switch contacts forty four, forty six ar mounted on the inner surface of the mounted plate two. associate degree ringed spring forty eight tightly surrounds shaft nineteen, and is thus hooked up to mounted disc two, and has spaced inturned ends that interact the other sides of switch contact rod forty and usually maintain the rod in focused position with its contact member forty two out of engagement with mounted contacts forty four, 46.

The suggests that and electronic equipment for energizing the driving motor thirty and dominant its direction and speed of rotation can currently be delineate. battery assembly fifty is provided among the hollow wheel and is mounted on mounted plate two and has positive and negative terminals. The rod forty is provided higher than contact member forty two with associate degree exterior layer of insulation and on this is often set a turbinate resistance wire fifty two. 2 arciform metal contact members fifty four, fifty six ar positioned on opposite sides of contact rod forty and ar mounted on mounted plate two at their higher ends and extend down and inside with relevance the contact rod with their lower ends in reality with resistance wire fifty two in order that because the pedals, plate two and therefore the contact rod forty ar emotional angularly a moving tangential contact is established that is increasingly higher on the resistance wire because the angle of movement of the pedals, plate and make contact with rod will increase.

Fixed contacts forty four, forty six ar connected, severally, to contact members fifty six, fifty four by leads fifty eight, 60. The positive terminal of battery fifty is connected to movable contact member forty two by lead sixty two and therefore the negative terminal is connected to the outer finish of resistance wire fifty two by lead sixty four. The positive terminal of motor thirty is connected to contact member fifty six by lead sixty six and therefore the negative terminal is connected by lead sixty eight to mounted switch contact forty six.

In the use associate degreed operation of the monocycle wheel the operator places the wheel in an upright position with the outside surface of projection twelve on the bottom surface and therefore the pedals horizontal and their foot participating surfaces upward. The operator currently mounts the vehicle along with his feet resting on the pedals and, for instance, tilts the pedals forwardly as shown at A in FIG. 2, inflicting shaft half dozen to rock slightly carrying with it the switch contact rod forty, that moves within the direction of the “forward” arrow in FIG. 3. Switch contacts forty two, forty four ar engaged and resistance wire fifty two on contact rod forty engages elongated contact member fifty four. A circuit is currently established from the positive terminal of battery fifty, through lead sixty two, movable contact forty two, mounted contact forty four, lead 58, lead 66, the positive and negative terminals of motor thirty, lead 68, mounted switch terminal forty six, lead 60, contact member fifty four, resistance wire fifty two and lead sixty four to the negative battery terminal. because the angular movement of the pedals is increased  the purpose of contact between resistance winding fifty two and make contact with member fifty four can increasingly move externally on rod forty, so increasingly decreasing the length of the resistance winding in circuit and so increasingly increasing the speed of rotation of motor thirty and therefore the speed of movement of the wheel on the bottom.

For reverse movement of the wheel the pedals ar rocked within the direction of arrow B in FIG. 2, finishing the subsequent circuit that causes reverse rotation of the reversing motor thirty. From the negative terminal of battery fifty, lead 64, resistance winding fifty two, contact member fifty six, lead 66, the positive and negative terminals of motor thirty, lead 68, mounted switch contact forty six, switch contact forty two and lead sixty two to the positive battery terminal.

It will be understood that the mounted switch contacts forty four, forty six ar mounted on plate two by suggests that that yield besieged of movable contact forty two because the pedals ar rocked to actuate the mechanism.

A recharging outlet seventy is provided on plate two and is connected to the terminals of battery fifty by leads seventy two, 74.
