E- Brake is a brake that can slow down and hold the vehicle when the hydraulic system fails. It works without having to press the pedal.
- An EPB or electronic parking brake activated the holding mechanism with a button and the brake pads are electrically applied to the rear wheels. This is accomplished through the electronic control unit (ECU) and with the help of an actuator mechanism.
- Apart from performing the basic vehicle holding function required of park brakes, the EPB system can provide other functions like the automatic release of the park brakes when the driver presses the accelerator or slips the clutch and reclamping using additional force on detection of vehicle motion
- Further, the hill-hold function, which applies the brake to prevent rollback when pulling away can also be implemented by the activation of electronic parking brake
