Template matching technique is used for the character recognition.
Objective: To propose a wavelet-based template matching technique to extract features for automatic classification of electrocardiogram signals of normal and arrhythmic individuals.
A template matching based ASR systems developed the Crosswords Reference Template (CWRT) method to improve the recognition accuracy by the 27[degrees]-45[degrees]-63[degrees] local-path constraint.
1) Since the fuzzy vault template matching is performed in the encryption domain, so the recognition rate will decline;
In [5], the principal component analysis (PCA) algorithm is adopted to an image obtained via segmentation following the method of Otsu [6] to estimate the main direction and recognise the targets via template matching.
The downsides of template matching are that it can be time-consuming and that it requires seismologists to have a clear idea of the signal they are looking for ahead of time.

Comparing Template Matching to Traditional Regression Methods
The normilized cross-correlation function is highly recommended for template matching (Briechle, Hanebeck 2001);
Repeating cycles of helicase denaturation, primer annealing, and polymerase extension act very much like classical PCR at this point, resulting in large-scale production of a primer-to-primer DNA product (Figure 2e) in those reactions where a template matching the primers existed.
