Abstract
Presents a procedure based on the generalized Lloyd algorithm approach using a seqence of independent noise samples to design M-region generalized quantizers for signal detection. Included in this case are the conventional M-interval quantizer detectors. The motivation for the study is the realization that a simple iterative design procedure is more practical and easier to implement in an unknown background noise environment. A mean-squared error distortion criterion is used in the algorithm to obtain quantizers that yield maximum efficacy. It is shown via numerical examples that the design procedure is simple, fast, and applicable to a wide range of non-Gaussian distributions.
