A set of switching sequences of a discrete-time switched linear system is said to be uniformly stabilizing if the system is uniformly exponentially stable over all switching sequences that belong to the set. Based on the recent result that a switched linear system is uniformly stable if and only if an increasing countable union of linear matrix inequality conditions is satisfied, we characterize all uniformly stabilizing sets of switching sequences. A discrete-time hybrid automaton of the automobile engine is considered to illustrate the result.
