This paper proposes a robust state observer for multi-input multi-output LTI systems. Unknown inputs of polynomial form and high-frequency measurement noises are considered in the system model. The unknown inputs and the noises are not in the same form. Multiple integrations of both the observer error signal and the measurement output are used for the observer design. The existence condition of the proposed observer is shown to be the same as that of the proportional-integral (PI) observer. Computer simulations show the effectiveness of the proposed observer.
