I tried to animate this indexing gear in Blender 2.8. To the gear on the right I added a driver with a modifier (y = 0 - 2x) depending on the rotation (y-axis) of the gear on the left. But how can I achieve that it stops rotating when it has no contact due to the missing cogs?

    $\begingroup$ If you are interested in doing this with rigid body recommend uploading a sample file to blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com To do with driver methods would need a more detailed driver method based on alignment of index gear. $\endgroup$ – batFINGER Aug 21 '19 at 12:32

Sorry for the late response. I uploaded the slightly modified file (it now has an additional internal gear):

I'd prefer to do the animation by driver method.
