In this paper, we consider output feedback stabilisation for a wave PDE-ODE system with Dirichlet boundary interconnection and external disturbance flowing the control end. We first design a variable structure unknown input type state observer which is shown to be exponentially convergent. Then, we estimate the disturbance in terms of the estimated state, an idea from active disturbance rejection control. These enable us to design an observer-based output feedback stabilising control to this uncertain PDE-ODE system.
