Here are a few use cases for this project:

  1. Cycling Safety Application Development: Developers working on innovative cycling safety applications could use the model to add functionality of recognizing cyclist's hand signals. The app could alert nearby smart vehicles or pedestrians about possible turns, stops, or other cyclist actions for preventing accidents.

  2. Autonomous Vehicle Navigation: Companies developing self-driving cars can use this model to improve their object detection capabilities. Such a model could help autonomous vehicles predict cyclist's actions (turns, stops, road hazards) based on hand signals, ensuring safer navigation on roads with cyclists.

  3. Smart Traffic Monitoring Systems: The model can be used to optimize traffic flow in cities. By identifying cyclist hand signals and predicting their moves, traffic lights and signals can be manipulated to make way for cyclists, reducing traffic congestion and improving safety.

  4. Bike Training Simulations: For cycling beginners or trainers, a VR or video-based training software could incorporate this model to teach the importance of hand signals, how to use them correctly, and how to understand other cyclist's signals for effective on-road communication.

  5. Cycling Event Broadcasting: Sports broadcasting companies can use the model to enhance viewer experience in cycling events (like Tour de France). The model can interpret and display what hand signals the cyclists are using in real-time, adding to viewer's understanding of the race strategy and techniques.
