This paper proposes a system for people trajectory shape analysis by exploiting a statistical approach which accounts for sequences of both directional (the directions of the trajectory) and linear (the speeds) data. A semi-directional distribution (AWLG -Approximated Wrapped and Linear Gaussian) is used with a mixture to find main directions and speeds. A variational version of the mutual information criterion is proposed to prove the statistical dependency of the data. Then, in order to

A comprehensive analysis of variable dependency and parameter estimation techniques are reported and evaluated on both synthetic and real data sets.
