In this paper we present a control law for globally asymptotically stabilizing a class of controllable nonlinear systems without drift. The control law converts into closed loop feedback earlier strategies for open loop steering of nonholonomic systems using sinusoids at integrally related frequencies. The global result is obtained by introducing saturation functions. Simulation results for stabilizing a simple kinematic model of an automobile are included.
