We investigate interactions between vectorial solitary waves through typeII second-harmonic generation. We demonstrate that one can tune the collision distance of two initially codirectional solitary waves changing their polarization state. Moreover, by adiabatic perturbation analysis, it is possible to predict such a collision distance as a function of solitary-wave separation, in good agreement with numerical simulations.
