Title: WHEEL ASSEMBLY
Abstract:
A wheel assembly (10), comprising a wheel hub (12) and a tyre (14) that collectively define a substantially fixed volume (16). Further provided is an actuator (18) located within the wheel assembly (10), such that it separates the fixed volume (16) into a first sub-volume (20) and a second sub-volume (22). The actuator (18) is moveable between a first position and a second position, so as to cause a change of pressure within each of the first sub-volume (20) and the second sub-volume (22).
