A method was proposed to detect so called "texting while walking" from positions of human body 25 keypoints estimated by the OpenPose for a person in a video scene. The method was based on the fact that movements of human joints had some spatial correlation structures. Walking behaviors with or without using a smartphone were separated by the difference between the correlation structures. We evaluated the difference using a canonical correlation analysis applied to two covariance matrices
