In this paper, we consider a switching system modeled by a discrete-time flow model. By simulation, it is shown that a lot of border-collision bifurcations occur since the system is piecewise linear. By using its characteristics, we classify its dynamics into modes, and we define blocks and a kind of Poincare map based on the modes. We calculate occurrence conditions of each block and all the Poincare points by computer-assisted analysis. We consider two bifurcation phenomena, and we show that a Poincare point hits a boundary of the occurrence conditions of a block. So, both bifurcations are indeed border-collision bifurcations.
