Abstract: Hand brake is one of the most important components in vehicles. In general the hand brake is operated manually. We are developing Automatic Hand Brake System for safety. The hand brake engagement and disengagement is done with the help of rack & pinion. In cars the hand brake is a latching brake usually used to keep the car stationary. Automobiles e-brakes usually consist of a cable directly connected to a brake mechanism on one end and to some type of mechanism that can be actuated by the driver on the other end .the mechanisms is often a hand –operated lever, on the floor on either side of the driver, a pull handle located below and near the steering wheel column, or a pedal located far apart from the other pedals.The Hand brake lever is coupled with motor. A motor used to apply and release the hand brake through Rack. Motor is driven by the control unit (Micro controller). When ignition is given then a signal is sent to control unit to release the hand brake. When the vehicles is in rest stage i.e when the vehicle is not moving the Hand brake is applied.
