Abstract : In this paper, we show that general nonlinear switched systems are asymptotically controllable if and only if there exist control-Lyapunov functions for their relaxation systems. If the switching signal is dependent on the time, then the control-Lyapunov functions are continuous. And if the switching signal is dependent on the state, then the control-Lyapunov functions are $C^1$-smooth. We obtain the results from the viewpoint of control system theory. Our approach is based on the relaxation theorems of differential inclusions and the classic Lyapunov characterization.
