Abstract [en]

In this paper, we analyse the performance of a multi-pulse impulse radio based ultra-wideband (IR-UWB) detector in an AWGN setting and provide different fusion strategies for fusing these detector outputs. To enable the transceiver to be used for multiple applications, the designers have different types of detectors such as energy detectors, amplitude detectors, etc., built in to a single transceiver architecture. In this paper, we derive the detection performance equation for commonly used detectors in terms of false alarm rate, shape of the pulse, and number of UWB pulses used in the detection and apply these in the fusion algorithms. We show that the performance can be improved by approximately 4 dB in terms of signal to noise ratio (SNR) for high probability of detection of a UWB signal (95%), by fusing decisions from multiple detector types compared to a standalone energy detector, in a practical scenario.
