For a certain class of switched nonlinear systems, backstepping method is applied to design the state feedback controllers and switching law based on multi-Lyapunov functions. The state feedback controllers and switching law which can stabilize the system are developed. Under some conditions, this class of switched nonlinear systems with uncertainties can be stabilized robustly by using the proposed method. Finally, the simulation result shows the effectiveness of the designed strategy.
