How to calculate the inclination angle of whole box which their 4 vertices are stored in cell array with respect to the horizontal x-axis?
There is cell with size 1*23 , In each part of cell there are four (x,y) coordinates stored (23 Bounding boxes coordinates )as the following:
c = {{[x1 , y1], [x2, y2], [x3 , y3 ], [x4 , y4 ]}, {[x1 , y1], [x2, y2], [x3 , y3 ], [x4 , y4 ]}, ........... }
The attached file is xy coordinates of the vertices of the boxes.
The coordinates are in the order:
(left-bottom), (right-bottom), (left-top), (right-top).where each coordinate is an (x, y) pair.. i.e([x1 , y1], [x2, y2], [x3 , y3 ], [x4 , y4 ])

boxes = cellfun(@(z) cell2mat(z(:)) ,c ,'UniformOutput' ,false)
boxes=cat(3,boxes{:});
rays=normalize( boxes(4,:,:)-boxes(3,:,:) ,2 ,'n');
angles= squeeze( acosd( rays(:,1,:) ) );
