Abstract: When applied to continuous-time observations, type-based detection strategies are limited by the necessity to crudely quantize each sample. To alleviate this problem, we smooth the types for both the training and observation data with a linear filter. This post-processing improves the detector performance significantly (error probabilities decrease by over a factor of three) without incurring a significant computational penalty. However this improvement depends on the amplitude distribution and on the quantizer's characteristics.
