We compute explicitly feedback linearizing coordinates for a two-input control system without solving the corresponding PDEs. Our algorithm is based on a successive application of the Frobenius’ theorem and does not necessitate the checking of the involutive conditions for feedback linearization. Examples are provided for illustration.
