This paper proposes a time-varying tube-based output feedback model predictive control (MPC) design for constrained linear systems in the presence of intermittently delayed observations, where the delayed/missing data patterns for each period satisfy a finite-length language. The design consists of a dynamic state estimator whose estimation errors satisfy equalized recovery (a weaker form of invariance with time-varying finite bounds), as well as an output feedback control law that extends existing tube-based output feedback MPC approaches to allow time-varying tubes for tightening the original state and input constraints. The resulting time-varying tube-based output feedback MPC design is robust to time-varying disturbances and errors, including when the observations are intermittently delayed. Further, we provide sufficient conditions for recursive feasibility and robust exponential stability of the proposed design. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed approach is able to robustly stabilize and control a constrained linear system despite disturbances, noise and missing/delayed data.
