Modeling switching processes for control purpose takes advantage from the Piece-Wise Affine identification of hybrid dynamical systems briefly recalled in this paper. A couple of applications are addressed, namely to discriminate hormone pulses from background noise, in a physiologically switching process, and to identify sleep apneas, as pathological switching among healthy and potentially risky states. Other potential applications are proposed.
