Abstract

Safety in automobile is most important parameter on which every car user concentrate. Researchers also put efforts to increase safety in car. Handbrake (or parking brake) is one of the system in vehicle, which incorporated for safety when the car is parked or stopped on hill road, to stop the car. It is also essential in this system is that, when the car moves hand brake system must disengage? Conventional handbrake system has a hand lever for control which works manually. In this system due to manual errors, it is observed that the system may remain engaged when car is moving. And it is harmful to system components and for safety also. Our aim is to increase the safety by using modified parking brake system named as Automatic Handbrake engagement and release system. In this modified system, we are going to control Handbrake automatically without manual interfere. This system works on the input by ignition key position. As when the ignition switch turned ON, handbrake must disengage and vice versa when ignition switch is OFF, handbrake must engage. System may work electro-pneumatically using solenoid and pneumatic circuits.
