HOC (Human Orientation Classification) Dataset

HOC dataset is derived by the ETHZ [1] human re-acquisition datasets representing pedestrians in different orientations and (background) conditions, captured by hand-held cameras. ETHZ is structured in three sequences for a total of 8555 images, each image 64x32 pixels containing a pedestrian. We manually split the images into 4 orientation classes (Front, back, Left, and Right), individuating a training and a testing partition. The dataset is challenging because of the low resolution, severe illumination artifacts, occlusions and consistent changes in the scale.
