ABSTRACT The problem of adaptive robust state observer design
is considered for a class of uncertain dynamical systems with Time-varying
delays. A new method is presented whereby a class of memoryless adaptive
robust state observers with simpler structure is proposed. It is also shown
that by employing the proposed adaptive robust state observer, the observation
error between the observer state estimate and the true state can be guaranteed
to be uniformly exponentially convergent towards a ball which can be as small
as desired. Finally, a numerical example is given to demonstrate the validity
of the results.
