Abstract: Activity acknowledgment has turned into a critical theme in recognizing the passionate action with numerous crucial applications. To abstract the concept, human detection is the very initial step to be performed in each field like surveillances, abnormal behaviour detection, crowd analysis and etc. In human association, understanding human practices is a testing issue in this day and age. Various poses of the body will be the challenging always for activity recognition. Hence, orientation / pose of the body detection become a vital one. In this work, Head is used as the key for body-pose recognition. Here, we present a framework, which is capable of finding the posture orientation of a human body in context of head position. Extracted features are used to train Artificial Neural Networks to obtain the Head Position. Our work consists of following steps: (i) Human Detection (ii) Upper Body / Lower Body Detection (iii) Head Detection (iv) Human Pose Recognition. This work is implemented in Matlab Platform. Datasets are taken randomly from Google Images.

Keywords: Boundary Extraction, Upper and Lower Body Segmentation, Body-Pose Recognition.
