In this paper, we consider the robust output feedback problem for constrained linear systems. A novel interpolation based control scheme is introduced, which guarantees feasibility and robust asymptotically stable closed loop behavior despite the presence of constraints on the input and output variables and the presence of the additive and bounded disturbances. A solution to the problem of the state representation is provided through the use of stored input values and the measured past outputs.
