Based on orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems, an additional individual data transmission can be established in statistical spectrum domain, which can be adopted for specific applications. However, the performance of existing detection methods for this kind of transmission will be severely restricted when the channel coefficients are dynamic within each observation window.
In this paper, we propose an adaptive detection method for statistical signal transmission. This method has adequate adaptability for different channel varying rates, while maintaining low complexity. Simulation results show that the proposed method achieves significant performance gain compared to the original method under time varying channels.
