The aim of this article is to share a novel concept termed pseudo pilot, which offers a simple and efficient approach of non-pilot-assisted channel estimation. Our key idea is to transfer the uncertainty of several payload symbols into the uncertainty of symbol interleavers by employing a bank of interleavers at the transmitter. Those uncertainty-transferred symbols serve as pseudo pilots for the receiver to perform channel estimation. The uncertainty of symbol interleavers is then removed in the procedure of decoding. Performance and scalability of the pseudo pilot technique are evaluated through both theoretical analysis and computer simulations.
