We consider a smooth bracket-generating control-affine system in \( {\mathbb{R}^d} \) and show that any orientation-preserving diffeomorphism of \( {\mathbb{R}^d} \) can be approximated, in a very strong sense, by a diffeomorphism included in the flow generated by a time-varying feedback control which is polynomial with respect to the state variables and trigonometric-polynomial with respect to the time variable.
