The global output feedback stabilization problem is investigated in this paper via sampled-data control for switched nonlinear systems in the p -normal form. First, a reduced-order state observer is designed. Then, an output feedback sampled-data controller is constructed with the relaxation of some restrictions of switched nonlinear systems. The proposed controller can ensure that all states of the corresponding closed-loop system can converge to the origin. Simulation results are given to show the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
