|Title:||CHARGING SYSTEM AND CHARGER|
A charging system of an embodiment has an electric bus and a charger. The electric bus is provided with a storage functional unit, a drive unit, a charging unit, and a first communication unit. The drive unit drives the electric bus using power discharged from the storage functional unit. The charging unit charges the storage functional unit using power supplied from the charger. The first communication unit receives an identifier for the charger from the charger and sends a first command for commanding start of wireless communication to the charger identified using the received identifier. The charger is provided with a supply unit and a second communication unit. The supply unit supplies power to the electric bus stopped at a preset position. The second communication unit: transmits a first identifier for the charger when power is being supplied to the electric bus by the supply unit; transmits a second identifier as an identifier for the charger when power is not being supplied to the electric bus by the supply unit, the second identifier being different from the first identifier; and, when the first command has been received from the electric bus, sends and receives information relating to charging of the storage functional unit through wireless communication with the electric bus that is the source for sending the first command. The first communication unit prohibits sending of the first command once the second identifier has been received.
