Two adaptive energy detectors are proposed for cognitive radio systems to detect the primary users. Unlike the conventional energy detector (CED) where a decision is made after receiving all samples, our detectors make a decision with the sequential arrival of samples. Hence, the sample size of the proposed detectors is adaptive. Simulation results show that for a desired performance, the average sample size of the proposed detectors is much less than that of the CED. Therefore, they are more agile than the CED.
