For nonlinear continuous-time systems with continuous measurements of the output, we provide new reduced order observers that converge in finite time. The convergence time is independent of the initial state. For cases where the measurements are discrete, we provide asymptotically converging observers, whose rate of convergence is proportional to the negative of the logarithm of the size of the sampling interval. Our observers are based on the observability Gramian.
