Henri Perrot, born on 21 August 1883 (died in 1961) in Paris, was a French engineer who was one of the pioneers of the automobile industry from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He holds numerous patents in the field of automotive drum/shoe braking.

Drum brakes[edit]

In 1924, after meeting at a European auto show, Vincent Bendix acquired the license to manufacture Perrot's shoe-brake patents.[1]


After World War I Henri Rougier reworked a limited quantity of his 1913/14 Turcat-Méry chassis which included adding 4 wheel brakes using Henri Perrot's latest drum/shoe brake design.[1]


He died in 1961 in Monte Carlo.
