Abstract

A detector is said to be superior if the information is extracted in a best way for some particular purpose. Here the objective of this paper is to analyze the detection performance of non-coherent detectors such as square law detector, linear detector and logarithmic detector in a background of white Gaussian noise (WGN) for Ultra Wide Band Short Range Radar in Automotive applications. It is assumed that the target is stationary and energy reflected from the target is distributed. The non-coherent detectors have almost similar detection probability in a background of white Gaussian noise. The performance of the detector is analyzed and simulation has been done in order to verify.
