The application of nonparametric techniques in distributed detection systems is investigated. Sign detectors and dead-zone limiter detectors are considered. Generalized Gaussian distribution is used as the input statistics, which is a general class of symmetric, unimodal, univariate probability density functions. Performance comparisons between nonparametric distributed detectors and some parametric distributed detectors are given.
