In this paper, we propose a simplified Maximum Likelihood (ML) detection scheme for Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) system that has much less computational complexity than the conventional ML detection scheme. Simulation results verify that the bit error rate (BER) performance of the proposed scheme is close to that of the ML detection scheme with significant complexity reduction.
