This paper proposes a novel mean field-based Chamfer template matching method. In our method, each template is represented as a field model and matching a template with an input image is formulated as estimation of a maximum of posteriori in the field model. Variational approach is then adopted to approximate the estimation. The proposed method was applied for two different variants of Chamfer template matching and evaluated through the task of object detection. Experimental results on benchmark datasets including ETHZShapeClass and INRIAHorse have shown that the proposed method could significantly improve the accuracy of template matching while not sacrificing much of the efficiency. Comparisons with other recent template matching algorithms have also shown the robustness of the proposed method.
