As the population of the world increases, urbanization generates crowding situations which poses challenges to public safety and security. Manual analysis of crowded situations is a tedious job and usually prone to errors. In this paper, we propose a novel technique of crowd analysis, the aim of which is to detect different dominant motion patterns in real-time videos. A motion field is generated by computing the dense optical flow. The motion field is then divided into blocks. For each block, we adopt an Intra-clustering algorithm for detecting different flows within the block. Later on, we employ Inter-clustering for clustering the flow vectors among different blocks. We evaluate the performance of our approach on different real-time videos. The experimental results show that our proposed method is capable of detecting distinct motion patterns in crowded videos. Moreover, our algorithm outperforms state-of-the-art methods.
