Analyzing human crowds is an important issue in video surveillance and is a challenging task due to their nature of non-rigid shapes. In this paper, optical flows are first estimated and then used for a clue to cluster human crowds into groups in unsupervised manner using our proposed clustering method. While the clusters of human crowds are obtained, their behaviors with attributes, orientation, position and crowd size, are characterized by a model of force field. Finally, we can predict the behaviors of human crowds based on the model and then detect if any anomalies of human crowd(s) present in the scene. Experiment results obtained by using extensive dataset show that our system is effective and efficient in detect anomalous events for uncontrolled environment of surveillance videos.
