Abstract

The article discusses active wheel systems used in motor vehicles and aviation. The use of chassis with active wheels, i.e. wheels equipped with integral electric drive, significantly facilitates maneuvering of helicopters during taxiing. This allows you to reduce fuel costs and increase the safety of both helicopter crews and ground personnel.
