This paper is devoted to the problem of robust output tracking control for uncertain cascade switched nonlinear systems with external disturbances. A sufficient condition for the output tracking problem of switched systems to be solvable is given in terms of the average dwell-time scheme and linear matrix inequalities where no solvability of the output tracking control problem for all subsystems is assumed. The controllers are designed based on a variable structure control method in order to conquer the uncertainties. Simulations illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed robust tracking design method.
