Mechanism for converting two-way to one-way rotation 1

The yellow input shaft may change rotation direction but the rotation direction of the orange output gear keeps unchanged because of ratchet mechanisms placed between the yellow shaft and the big gears. Friction overrunning roller clutch can be used instead of ratchet mechanism to avoid noise and backlash.
