This study contributes to the field of orientation detection from camera footage, showcasing the advancements in computer vision techniques and their practical applications. The insights gained from this study can be leveraged in various domains, including surveillance, security, activity recognition, and pose estimation, fostering the development of more efficient and accurate orientation detection systems. Impressive results are obtained, with high AUROC values achieved for classifying different orientations: 0.91 for 'right,' 0.91 for 'left,' 0.95 for 'fore,' and 0.93 for 'back.' These results underline the models' ability to accurately estimate human body orientations as fore, back, right, and left from camera footages with a high degree of accuracy.
