This paper addresses the identification of non-linear systems. A wide class of these systems can be described using nonlinear time-invariant regression models, that can be approximated by means of piecewise affine prototypes with an arbitrary degree of accuracy. This work concerns the identification of piecewise affine model parameters through input-output data affected by additive noise. In order to show the effectiveness of the developed technique, the results obtained in the identification of both a simple simulated system and a real dynamic process are reported.
