Abstract

Method (400) and control unit (210) for adjusting an inter vehicular distance (130) between vehicles (100a, 100b, 100c) in a platoon (110). The control unit (210) is configured to: obtain a geographical position for a vehicle (100a, 100b, 100c) in the platoon (110); determine a zone (200a) wherein the obtained geographical position is situated; determine an inter vehicular minimum distance limit, associated with the determined zone (200a); and adjust the inter vehicular distance (130) between the vehicles (100a, 100b, 100c) in the platoon (110) into the determined inter vehicular minimum distance limit by sending a control signal to the vehicle (100a, 100b, 100c) in the platoon (110).
