    We study the Noninteracting Control Problem for affine nonlinear control systems under the assumption that the number of scalar inputs equals the number of vector outputs. Our purpose is to find a static state feedback law for the system which achieves noninteraction. Using the recently developed differential geometric approach to nonlinear systems theory and working under a set of regularity assumptions, we give necessary and sufficient conditions for the local solvability of the problem. This work extends earlier results in the “geometric approach” for linear systems.
