This paper investigates the robust tracking and regulation control problems for discrete-time, switched piecewise linear hybrid systems affected by parameter variations. In particular, the main question addressed is related to the existence of a controller such that the closedloop system exhibits an attainable desired behavior under all possible parameter variation. Checking attainability and calculating the state space regions for which a robust control is assured despite the uncertainty is
