The authors present a control law for globally asymptotically stabilizing a class of controllable nonlinear systems without drift. The control law combines earlier work in steering nonholonomic systems using sinusoids at integrally related frequencies, with the ideas in recent results on globally stabilizing linear and nonlinear systems through the use of saturation functions. Simulation results for stabilizing a simple kinematic model of an automobile are included
