Hybrid Electric Vehicle has become one of the most promising vehicles in the automobile industry due to its energy saving ability and low emission of harmful pollutants. Plugging is used for instantaneous braking or quick reversal of the vehicle. This paper proposes a novel approach for design and fabrication of micro controller based plugging braking technique used in ELECTRIC VEHICLE (EV) / HYBRID ELECTRIC VEHICLE (HEV). To realise this technique, an embedded systems programming is developed using KEIL and PROTEUS softwares. The status of the vehicle motion is indicated by means of Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) and Light Emitting Diode (LED). The simulation and experimental results ensure the feasibility and advantages of the new approach.
