    In the paper we study control of a balanced dynamically nonsymmetric sphere with rotors. The no-slip condition at the point of contact is assumed. The algebraic contrability is shown and the control inputs providing motion of the ball along a given trajectory on the plane are found. For some simple trajectories explicit tracking algorithms are proposed.
    Keywords: non-holonomic constraint, non-holonomic distribution, control, Chow–Rashevsky theorem, drift
