Brake Failure Detection With Auxilary Braking System In Cars
Brakes are implemented in cars to stop the vehicle. The increase in number of deaths and accidents is due to
brake failure. Brake failures mainly occur due to brake lining failures and results in pressure loss . The aim of our paper is to
diagnose faulty braking system and application of an auxiliary secondary braking system in case of brake failures. We can
achieve it by using sensors and dual braking units. A pressure transducer sensor monitors the pressure in brake lining. When
the primary hydraulic disc brake fails , the sensor detects the pressure loss and gives warning signal to the driver and also
activates power supply to the secondary braking unit which is a hub motors in rear wheels . This functions as a secondary
braking unit and helps the driver to stop the vehicle and thus ensures safety of the passengers.
