A packet detection method for zero-padded orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) transmission is presented. The proposed algorithm effectively conducts packet detection by employing both an M-sample time delayed cross correlation value, and a received signal power calculated by using the received input samples corresponding to the zero padding (ZP) intervals or less.
