  Driving wheel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On a steam locomotive, a driving wheel is a powered wheel which is driven by the locomotive's pistons (or turbine, in the case of a steam turbine locomotive).
On a conventional, non-articulated locomotive, the driving wheels are all coupled together with side rods (also known as coupling rods); normally one pair is directly driven by the main rod (or connecting rod) which is connected to the end of the piston rod; power is transmitted to the others through the side rods.
The driving wheel or drive sprocket on tracked vehicles (such as tank or bulldozer) is a large chain wheel that moves the track and rotates it around it.

 Wheel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wheels are used in conjunction with an axle, either the wheel turns on the axle or the wheel is rigidly attached to the axle which then turns in bearings in the body of the vehicle.
The invention of the wheel thus falls in the late Neolithic and may be seen in conjunction with the other technological advances that gave rise to the early Bronze Age.
The invention of the wheel turned out to be of great importance not only as a transportation device, but for the development of technology in general, important applications including the water wheel, the cogwheel (see also antikythera mechanism), the spinning wheel, the astrolabe or torquetum.

 GamingWorld - X Clusive Logitech Driving Force Pro Review
But despite the quality of the Driving Force, Logitech wasn’t convinced that they’ve pushed the envelope far enough, and with Polyphony Digital’s upcoming Gran Turismo 4 for PlayStation 2 serving as inspiration, Logitech bestows their know-how into what is obviously their supreme driving wheel creation: The Driving Force Pro.
With its slick design and ergonomic layout, the Logitech Driving Force Pro gives gamers the most realistic driving experience in videogames by providing technology that has yet to be duplicated in a videogame driving wheel peripheral: 900 degrees of wheel rotation.
The wheel is a beefy 10 inches, and an aluminum hub adorns the center.

 Globetechnology: Driving Force wheel for PS/2
The Driving Force goes all out: the wheel can either be clamped down to your coffee table or nestled in your lap with a special attachment.
Additionally, the wheel has a pair of gear shifters on each side of it, mounted behind the wheel on the steering column, for people who like to drive with manual transmission.
While there's nothing wrong with driving a car with nothing but your left thumb (as some people do in real life), it just doesn't feel as realistic as screeching around a bend with your fingers digging into a steering wheel.

 Prohibition Times: Wreckless Driving: Front-Wheel Drive
As a car salesman, this was one of the chief complaints that I heard from some customers; perhaps they had trouble pulling out of their driveways on a wet or snowy day.
A rear wheel drive car, in a power-off driving situation, is much more stable and predictable.
However, a front wheel drive car, in these conditions, behaves exactly the opposite to what a driver is attempting to accomplish.

 Logitech Driving Force Pro Review : Logitech Driving Force Pro : Wheels : GameSpot Hardware
With 2001's Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec, Logitech introduced a driving wheel specifically designed to be used with that entry in the series, the Logitech GT Force.
The wheel automatically calibrated itself throughout its 200- or 900-degree rotation and we were all set to go.
You can't just flick the stick quickly and move your hand back to the wheel, as the stick has a tendency to snap back slightly too hard along its range of motion, which may shift you back to the original gear you were trying to shift out of.

The overall unit is nine by nine inches, and the wheel itself is eight inches in width and does lend itself to feeling “compact” as many race care wheels are in real life.
The smaller size of the wheel allows it to easily sit in your lap during use and there are suction cups on the bottom of the unit if you prefer to attach it to a table.
Compared to other wheels that are larger and have foot pedals (that are often a hassle to use), the Pelican GT2 Racing Wheel performs quite well and does add to the overall gaming experience.

Claims that 4WD television advertising did not indicate illegal and environmentally damaging activities were rejected by the ETC.
