In this paper, we focus on the viability and attraction for switched nonlinear systems with nonsmooth Lyapunov functions. We determine the viable set and region of attraction for switched systems in which Lyapunov functions are piecewise smooth. The switching law is constructed by using the directional derivatives of a piecewise smooth Lyapunov function along the trajectories of the subsystems. Sufficient conditions are derived to guarantee the viability and attraction of switched nonlinear systems on the level set of a piecewise smooth Lyapunov function. We further extend the method to switched systems involving possible sliding motions. The approach in the paper provides a unified framework for studying viability and attraction with a systematic consideration of sliding motions. Finally, considering two certain classes of piecewise smooth functions, the related conditions of the viability and attraction for the level set are developed.
