In this paper, we study the control of the successive vehicle spacings of a platoon of vehicles traveling up hill with an incline angle. The analysis on both the identical and non-identical vehicle cases was examined. Under the steady velocity changes of the lead vehicle, we found that that the deviations of the vehicles from their pre-assigned positions for both cases are reasonably small and are also able to return to their steady state. The final steady state deviations of the vehicles in the platoon increase with the increase in the steepness of the hill.
