The tracking problem for continuous-time systems is investigated. It is assumed that the states of the systems are not available. An observer is firstly designed to estimate the states by using the method. The control action is consist of a state-feedback control, an integral component, and a feedforward loop. The linear-matrix-inequality region is used to constrain the eigenvalue location for the closed-loop systems. The control gains can be obtained by solving a sequence of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs) which can guarantee the mixed performance for the closed-loop systems.
