  • Patent number: 11568684
    Abstract: The invention provides a control unit and a control system for a vehicle capable of reducing a workload of deleting a record of information of an unintended event detected by a certain control unit by preventing the other control unit from recording the information of the event. Control units (50a to 50d) that are mounted on the vehicle and connected in a mutually communicable manner each include an event processing section (55). The event processing section (55) executes one or both of processing to switch whether to notify a recording request of the information of the event and processing to switch necessity/unnecessity of recording of the information of the event.
