We consider the problem of output feedback exponentially stabilizing the 1-D bilayer Saint-Venant model, which is a coupled system of two rightward and two leftward convecting transport partial differential equations (PDEs). The PDE backstepping control method is employed. Our designed output feedback controller is based on the observer built in this paper and the state feedback controller designed in , where the backstepping control design idea can also be referred to  and can be treated as a generalization of the result for the system with constant system coefficients  to the one with spatially-varying coefficients. Numerical simulations of the bilayer Saint-Venant problem are also provided to verify the result.
