This paper presents a novel output-based, discrete-time, sliding mode controller design methodology. In order to reproduce an output target profile, feed-forward controllers yield an excellent performance, however their robustness against disturbances and parameter variations is limited. In this paper a combination is made of a feed-forward controller for good tracking performance and an output-based sliding mode controller to increase robustness. Also the possibility of using a reduced order state-error observer is considered.
