Title: Vehicle manual brake auxiliary system

Abstract: An auxiliary system for a manual brake in a vehicle includes a controlling unit to receive and analyze signals indicating current vehicle status and whether a driver is away from the vehicle so as to initiate necessary actions, a pressure sensor adapted for a driver's seat to sense pressure from the driver and then send a signal to the controlling unit to determine whether the driver is at the driver's seat, a speed interface to communicate an input of the controlling unit with an onboard vehicle speed sensor (VSS) to allow the controlling unit to acquire a speed signal as a reference for determination of whether the car is in movement and a server mechanism to mechanically control the brake system via a motor under control of the controlling unit.
