Designing an intelligent or adaptive transceiver system is becoming a promising technology for upcoming generations of wireless communication systems due to its adaptivity, spectrum efficiency, and low-latency characteristics. However, there is no work available until now that characterizes and demonstrates complete adaptation in the physical layer for orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. In this article, we propose and implement sequential blind parameter estimation methods for OFDM signals using radio frequency (RF) testbed setup in a realistic scenario. The estimations include the number of subcarriers, symbol duration, cyclic prefix, oversampling factor, symbol timing offset (STO), and carrier frequency offset (CFO). The proposed algorithms also include blind modulation classification for linearly modulated signals over a frequency-selective fading channel. The parameter estimation has been carried out through a cyclic cumulant process. The modulation formats are classified by using normalized fourth-order cumulant in the frequency domain. The STO and CFO are estimated by a proposed modified maximum likelihood algorithm. The performances of parameter estimations, modulation classification, and synchronization are measured through analytical, simulation, and measurement studies. The overall performance of the OFDM system is provided in terms of the received constellation diagram and bit error rate (BER) over an indoor propagation environment.
