Title: VEHICLE CONTROL UNIT
Abstract:
A vehicle control unit (ECU, 100) is used in an automobile (1) capable of towing a towed vehicle (90), and performs deceleration control by controlling at least a braking device (10) or engine (5) of the automobile (1) so that the speed of the automobile (1) and the towed vehicle decreases when it is determined that swaying has occurred while the automobile (1) is towing the towed vehicle (90). The ECU (100) performs control so that the amount of deceleration control (the amount the engine torque is reduced, for example), which is the amount of control to slow the automobile with said deceleration control, becomes smaller as the road surface grade becomes larger.
