Standard energy detectors (ED) are optimum to detect unknown signals in presence of uncorrelated Gaussian noise. However, in real applications the signal duration and bandwidth are unpredictable and this fact can considerably degrade the detection performance if the appropriate observation vector length is not correctly selected. Therefore, a multiple energy detector (MED) structure is applied in the time as well as in the frequency domain and it is evaluated in real acoustic scenarios. The results obtained demonstrate the robustness of the MED structure and a performance improvement in comparison to the standard ED.
